I have lowered the back end of my DL650 about 3/4" but need to go more. What brand brackets will lower it the most and where do I find them? Is there a limit to how far one can raise the front forks. I am at 1" now.

1" is already a bit much for the front. 21mm is a better number except for ABS Wees with fork braces where 7-10mm is maximum. 1-1/8" or about 28mm is maximum for the rear. The problem I have with that is Vees and Wees have better aerodynamics with the front lowered more than the rear.

Thanks Pat. I was hoping you would reply. The bike handles fine now as is but I wanted to get it as low as possible. It may be time to concider other bikes that are lighter and lower as I get older.
