well, I just recently lowered my 02 ZX6r with lowering links that i purchased from
-theyre kinda expensive, you may be able to buy cheaper ones from ebay. But anyway,
They worked great, I put them on the middle setting and can notice a huge difference. I also had some guy I know lower the triple tree about one inch. It took him like 15 minutes to do. (really easy) I thought it would affect the ride but to be honest, I dont notice much of a difference when I ride. All I know is that the bike feels great. Im flat footed now and Im only 5'6. I can maneuver the bike with ease and I love it. The only thing is that the kickstand needs to be shortened now. The bike is almost straight up now with the stock kickstand and Im afraid it can be easily tipped over. But I will fix that next week. I know a guy that will take about an inch or a liitle more from the kickstand and reweld it back. I can send you pics of my bike in its new lower setting and can email them to you so you know how it looks. I think you should do the same thing.
Oh and by the way. It took about 25 minutes with 2 people to put the links on so dont let some shop try and rip you off. Let me know if you have any questions and as soon as I take the pics I will email them to you. Probably tomorrow or tuesday. Good Luck.
