How hard is it to adjust a bike that has been lowered to it's original height?

GSXR 750 2007 I'm not sure. I'm thinking of buying one that has been lowered but didn't think to ask how it was lowered.

Most likely they dropped the forks and put lowering dog bones on it. You'll need some stock ones, if the owner doesn't have the originals, you're looking at about $100. Lowering the new GSXR's is a huge pain in the ass.

If the previous owner used multi height links you're 1 step ahead. Those have a "stock" height hole so putting the back to stock height isn't that bad. Raising the front back up is irritating but if you're carefull and take your time it isn't bad.

If you go with this bike contact me at Devil Dawg and we'll take care of it for you. We raise and lower bikes all the time.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.
