04-05 ZX-10r links will lower it....had some left from my 10, and they worked flawlessly, she is only 4'11 and it had to be done...

wow that makes the bike look much smaller. when you lowered it did it only lower the back or what exactly did you lower. ive read most lowering links do just the back but i am maybe wrong. did you have to do any mods to the kickstand? how much were your lowering links for the zxr10? i think it looks pretty clean. cool!

i got the links off ebay for 20 bucks....it just lowered the rear, and on the first notch you dont have to cut the kickstand and it lowers it about 1 1/2 inches, the second hole does about 3 inches and you have to cut about 2 inches off the stand

I can attest that the 04-05 links DO work. I have them on my fiance's bike. I cannot remember the brand name exactly. Also, you can only really use the first setting, because the bike is lowered so much on the second and third settings that it is impossible to ride anywhere.

I searched Ebay recently and they did have 08 250R links available.
