lowering a 95 900rr

What would be the difference in lowering using a lowering link, or those supports on the sides of the link. The triangle things. Because I've seen that you can lowering it using either one of those. The triangles are only like $40, while getting a new link is like $120.
What would be the benefits of lowering a bike to begin with?

Re: lowering a 95 900rr

There are benefits to lowering the bike, if you are into drag racing it is a plus. On the downside it does affect cornering. Something to keep in mind. Also , you will probably have to get your kickstand shortened if you you do lower it.

Re: lowering a 95 900rr

As far as lowering the bike in the rear, either option will be fine. (Where did you find the support brackets for the dogbone anyway?) Most use the Dogbone though because the bike can be dropped to different heights depending upon whether or not you go with an adjustable one. The best way to lower any bike would be by using a rear shock and spring set that keeps the geometry correct. That's very expensive for most though.

As for lowering the front - just slide the fork legs up the triple trees to equal the distance dropped in the rear. If you are drag racing go with a lowering strap.

Will you have to cut the kickstand? It's likely.
WIll it affect the handling of the bike? You will have a lower center of gravity and the bike will seem lighter. Depending upon how low you go there is a possibility of dragging the pegs and can in the corner.

I was looking to see if there was an actual manufacturer known. You can find just about anything on e-bay.
