Going to work on getting lowering links installed. If the picture doesnít come through I lifted rear of bike only using my stand that lifts it by the swing arm just under the rear axle. Iím just trying to get it straight up to work on it being I have no center stand. Iím pretty sure I still need to do the lifting Up under the rear seat by strapping it to a beam in my garage. But the question is by lifting the rear off the ground using the swing arm will it interfere with getting the links on and off?

|Mucksavage||OK, thanks. So the new to me '12 Glee I just bought has "147" stamped on them. That's a lowering link, correct?|

|richlandrick||The stock links have "06G" on them. Our links have numbers indicated center to center distance in mm.|

|JWnWyoming||Well, I pulled the trigger on lowering links today. Thought I could get by with the stock height but found I could not get traction in sand, gravel etc. So I ordered some from Rick. As soon as they get here and installed, I get to figure out what to do with the kickstand! I sure appreciate the knowledge and insight on these boards.|

I love the difference it makes -- better handling, easier to duck-walk it around -- everything you lower a bike for. Btw, I'm 5'9" 29-30" inseam.
Strange thing is, with the 2017, I don't seem to need the Soupy's kickstand. It still has adequate lean on the stock. And, of course, I went out and pre-bought the Soupy's kickstand in anticipation.
So, my advice is lower your 2013... Decide if you think you need to swap out kickstands. If you do, and you want a Soupy's, you can have mine for 50% off -- it's brand new, never installed it...
Let me know.
