S1000 XR GEN 2 LOWERING
on: February 01, 2021, 11:39:53 AM
Hi Guys,
Im an owner of an S1000XR 2021 model and unfortunately i didnt order the bike at lowered version so im looking for a solution apart fm lower seat,in order to lower it 2-3cm.
Any ideas for lower link kit?i checked on ebay but still nothing available for gen2 model... :003: :003:
Brocks Performance has an adjustable lowering kit for new S1000RR 2020 but i dont know if this fits to new XR...
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately the Gen-2 XR doesn't have suspension links like the Gen-1, so there's nowhere to put "lowering links" as such. The only way to do it I suspect is possibly a shorter spring, and sliding the forks through the steering head.... but the original shock may not have enough travel to be able to use it. The "Factory Lowered" Gen-2 XR has a different shock and forks, as does the Gen-1.
