Methods to lower a C10
« on: June 12, 2018, 05:56:22 pm »
I have read lots of info (Pros and cons) about  changing the dogbone links on a C10 to change the height.

I want to lower my ride 2 inches.

I would rather buy a different seat or other option before changing the suspension.

Are there any other options other than changing the links?

I've not done any measuring, but after the ZX-9 front end swap and 17" wheels front and rear, it sure feels considerably lower on my son's 87 C10.  He's running angel gt's.  Completely transformed the bike!

Thanks, I will look into that. I checked my seat and there is about 3.4- 4 inches of foam pad there. I was thinking of shaving off half . Has anyone ever tried that?
