View Full Version : getting low, need advice

03-15-2012, 03:19 AM
Hi Guy's...and ladies,

have a 2007 XB12STT, same as XB12Ss 6" of suspension travel, longer rear swingarm looking for advice on how to drop it 2, 3, or 4 inches properly, i have seen the 1" lowering blocks for the rear and could cut down my front springs to match. but i'm hoping someone out there has some specs, or spring swapping ideas that would work. the kickstand is easy of course. will any other springs/forks bolt on?

thank you, Captain13Ron

? Just curious but why 4 inches? Are you super short or just want to drag can. Im pretty sure you would have like no clearance

I have a D&D pipe, got a lot of clearance, yes 4" is probably to low, 3 inches mabey, 2" minimum goal so i can be flatfooted at stoplights. I'm 5'8" using standard XB12Ss seat (thats lower than any other seat even though specs say otherwise, they leave out width. i have all three seats)
