Hey guys I've been watching this forum for a while but this is my first post.

I have an 05 600 blue that I just got a couple weeks ago(love it by the way) and I have a friend with an 04 600 yellow.

My question is actually for him... He is very short (like 5' 3" if i had to guess) and has no problem riding his bike, but has a problem holding it up when hes stopped(its funny i know). Anyways he wanted to know if he could lower his bike an inch or so to make it easier for him...

Is it possible(I'm still new to sport bikes) and what are the pros and cons to doing it? If there are parts you need to buy, please link me to them.

Thanks alot.

1 inch wont make a big difference in handling, just be sure he knows he wont be able to lean it all the way over. You will need to get some lowering links, they are easy to find, just do a search. And remember to lower the front and back the same amount.

Thanks for the info and not flaming me for being a squid


I've ridden quite a few sportbikes but this is the first one I have ever owned or got to spend any major time with. I actually just got back from a little ride, I'm up to 350 miles
