lowered front suspension

Recommended Posts

How can I tell if my front suspension has been lowered? The back has, and I am getting ready to change it back to the higher setting. Just wondering if I can do a measurement or something to tell if the front was ever lowered. The bike appears to have the stock kickstand on it. (black)

Remove one fork cap. If there is a 40mm long spacer on top of the spring, then it is is in the higher position. The Suzuki shop manual procedure for lowering says to take the spacer out of there and install below the damper deep inside the fork. There a couple of short cut ways to lower the front. Some just slide the tubes up in the triple clamps. Others (like me) take the spacers out of the top and put them on a shelf.

Thanks for the heads up. I am guessing I will have to have the bike jacked up so the front suspension is fully extended before I take that cap off?

Just as I suspected... The spacer was there right on top under the fork cap. So I guess the front was not lowered, only the rear. Thanks for the help Grandpa. Time to raise the rear back up.
