I know I will post pics as soon as I get a chance.

I have a question, I lowered the bike 2 inches in the rear with the muzzy lowering links and 2 inches in the front by sliding down the forks and the rear is still sitting a little lower then the front. I thought it was a 1:1 ratio deal or does the 10 sit lower in the rear stock? I wanted to get your thoughts before I lower the front another 1/4 inch or so...

thanks
-Chris

you can only slide the forks up so far ....then it becomes dangerous because of the taper in the forks !!
The forks taper? It doesnt look like it. If they do taper arent the forks thicker down by where the wheel mounts?? Please explain... thanks

When I went with the lowering links I was told that if I was lowering it 2' in the rear to only lower the front 1.5's. Be careful with your oil pan with it lowered, believe me, I know about that.
