I bought a demo model and the bike has been lowered front and back. Front forks are lowered to the maximum. (Forks almost touch handle bars.) The rear has been lowered I'm guessing 7/8" to 1". The bike handles well like this, but I've noticed some problems. As I grow more confident with the bike, the foot pegs are hitting the ground at times quite heavily. Also, I'am 230 lbs and when I carry a passenger (Preload to the max) the rear tire rubs on the inner fender. I'am going to put the rear back up to the stock hieght and see what the ride is like. Maybe I will raise the front up.
