I lowered my 2014 DL1000 ADV
I lowered my 2014V-2. Just got back from test riding it. Very, very pleased.
Mind you I could flat-foot the bike before I lowered it. I have a 32" inseam (with my feet side by side and a 30.5" inseam with my feet 24"apart). I lowered it one inch.
Bike is way better now! Nothing changes as far as turn-in etc. Had it up to 95+ for a minute or two, steady as ever. But it feels so much better with just that little bit of a lower center of gravity. It scrubs off that inkling of a circus act when you're sweeping back and forth at a high brisk pace. More natural. The other benefit was when I was in Downtown traffic. What that inch does is this: While I, as I said, could flat-foot it before, now I can do that with my feet 3-4 inches farther out on each side. Totally wipes out that tiny bit of extra attention you need when you stick the landing (come to a stop). Plus I can back up much easier.
It didn't cost very much and didn't take very long to do it.
I used the Adventure Tech plates. Good service, clear simple instructions.
