I am a new rider, female, about 5'7", but over 200lbs. I bought an '07 650r for my first bike about 10 days ago. I was on the balls of my feet and, as a new rider, felt less than comfortable that way. So, I purchased Soupy's lowering kit and installed it a few days ago. It probably lowered the bike around 3/4 of an inch. I also lowered the forks accordingly. With boots, I am now pretty close to flat-footed. However, the spring now bottoms on rough spots and is pretty stiff. Should I be worried about this? I can't really afford an $800 Penske shock or whatever. Also, should I be worried about the handling of the bike now? The dealership didn't act like it was a big deal but I am less than confident in them...
