Looking for inexpensive lowering links

I've been online looking at lowering links and the prices seem kind of outrageous. Do any of you guys have a line on less expensive links or used? I just can't bring myself to pay $150 for two small bits of steel.

Sent from my phone...there will be spelling errors!

$130 plus shipping is still more than Id like to spend.

Try eBay. I entered "V-strom lowering" and there are lots of options starting at $25 and going up from there. I would have no idea of the quality, though.

Excellent quality and great price - highly recommended. Will lower the rear by exactly 3/4".

Send me a check for $20 made out to the Humane Society of Jefferson County, and I'll send you a pair of aluminum 3/4" lowering links.

PM me for my address.

While on this topic of lowering links. I lowered my 11 Wee approximately 1" with adjustable lowering links. How did that affect the stance of my bike while on its' kickstand?, as I would like to buy the SW Motech kickstand foot which I am assuming will raise the bike a little?
