The Hornet has been lowered.

  1. Ok, ok so I'm short and consequently my poor Hornet has had some low speed drops, in fact i think I've been stopped and just because the ground is a little uneven I've run out of legs or over balanced. So far I've been lucky and only broken clutch/brake levers but my partner is concerned and insisted we install the lowering kit i bought some time ago from www.streetfighters.com. The suspension had to be dismantled and that caused quite a lot of angst, however with some incredible problem solving my partner overcame that hurdle and managed to fit the pieces to the suspension.

    She has been lowered by 35mm but i havent yet taken her for a ride to see if she handles any differently. I'll let you all know.
