Cymarc lowering kit
« on: October 28, 2016, 06:45:07 PM »
Hi all, anyone out there used cymarc for lowering the xr? he's claiming a safe drop of 20-25mm which would drop it to the height of my old tuono seat height but it's a wide seat the xr  so just wondering if it Makes a useable difference? Thanks

I have fitted a lowering kit from Soupy's in the US (and there are various other threads about it).

I had a K1300s with seat height of 820mm and hoped the lower XR seat would feel the same. However, a combination of wider seat and pegs located just where your feet want to plant made it a bit precarious for me (30" inside leg). The Soupy's key is adjustable and I have lowered the rear and front (lowered yokes) by about 20mm. I feels great, lowers the centre of gravity of the bike and I haven't touched the pegs down yet even though they are that much lower.
