I ordered the adjustable lowering links for the Glee from Soupy's Performance. The installed very easily and work great. I lowered the bike approx. 1/4" in the rear and dropped the forks through the triple the same amount.

I bought a set of adjustable links from Soupy's Performance. Very high quality, raise or lower.

Default Murphskits links

Installed a pair of lowering links from Murphskits, $44 (shipped) today. Lower the back of my glee 3/4". I also lowered the front by raising the forks 3/4". Very easy to do.
