Re: Lowering Link question.???
Depends, You can lower it like an inch with the stock adjuster... you can buy a new dog bone (the part you bought)...
It's really easy... just take two jack stands and prop the rear of the bike up on those... first loosen the 14mm bolts on either end of the dog bone (bike gets wonky if you do it while it's on jacks)... then bolt the new one in (use medium strength thread lock) and then your set.
Be careful, if you lower the bike it WILL handle like crap... I lowered my wife's bike so she could touch the ground and it snow plows like no other.... it's okay for her because she doesn't ride hard, but just be for-warned.
