Does anyone know weather or not this bike can be lowered? I'd like to pick up at least an inch!

Give Penske Suspension a call. They might be able to make something custom for you to be able to lower it. As of right now though, there isn't a bolt on deal yet.

Hey BPG, why wouldn't the CG forks, rear spring, and shock work? I know the forks will work, but how similar is the rear end?

The forks will not work. They are a lot smaller. Not to mention the lower triple trees a majorly different. and the rear shock is a bit longer already.

yes the forks are smaller for sure.

I cant recommend this because it will drastically change the way the motorcycle will handle but I called and spoke with Penske Racing. They can build a shock that will lower the rear of the 1125R 1". The shock number is PS-8983, Retail is $875. They would only need two things, the lower(drop)amount if you do not want an inch, and the body weight of the rider. You have several options for the front. Hope that helps.
