Can anyone provide me feedback on the following: How does the lowering link affect handling and clearance? Do you really get a 1 1/2" drop as they advertise? Can't you just lower the front fork assembly a bit? :thumbsup:

I installed one about a month ago, and I am happy with the results. I lowered the front about 1/2 inch to balance the overall stance. I lowered it too much in the front at first and the bike had a wierd "leaning forward" feel so I raised it back up a little. The difference in comfort that 1 1/2" drop makes is more than you might think- it was so for me.
