Lowering kit for CB500f

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Rolski, Sep 30, 2015.

  1. Can anyone recommend a lowering kit, thanks

  2. I seen it done on youtube on this model. can your feet touch the ground? I am rather short legged and my feet dont touch the ground flat.
    My personal feelings are that by lowering the bike it may affect the resale value in a negative way when it is time to sell.
  3. for rear seems to be either triangles, or single adjustable links

    some of the ebay turnbuckle types are a bit dodgy metal.. same for the alloy used for triangles

    for front, slide the triples down, too easy

    lowering is easily reversed....

  4. Already got my mechanic to do it, he said if I had to he can revert to original height, cost me $220 and $180 for lowering links and adjustable side stand, feel more safe now getting on and off bike :)
