You need to get some adjustable dog bones or make a strut for it.

An 88-92 will fit. 88-89 also have the same old style chain adj. like the 87 1100.They changed adj.on the 90&up but still work.I wish I could remember what that set-up looked like off the top of my head but I have a brain fart right now.

I'd say buy a much shorter spring!

and to lower the front..You'll have to remove You fairing stay,or The fork will only go down about 2"!later!
