had my 800 lowered and works just fine i really like it and no pegs rubbing.
Do you recall how many inches you lowered it? Did you have to change your shock setting?had my 800 lowered and works just fine i really like it and no pegs rubbing.
My A model is lowered 2 inches.. with a Corbin solo-seat.. without peg or pipe drag.. with rider weight at 175 lbs.. only drag is the center when loading onto a trailer.. U're B Model has the same suspension..I am getting a solo mustang seat and I hear that it will raise me on the bike a little more than the stock seat - so, I was wondering about purchasing a lowering kit. How far can/should I lower my VN800B without bottoming out and without making the peg scrape problem too much worse?
going solo but may load the bike up w/ gear for trips but that shouldn't equal another person - thanks.If U ever wish to have a passenger.. I suggest lower U're B (only) one inch.. If I ride someone lowered at 2 inches.. it will bottom out.. "SO" maybe only go one inch.. just my opinion thow..
I'm 210lbs. so I think I will get an adjustable lowering kit that goes from stock to 1,2, or 3 inches so I can adjust as needed.Had mine lowered 2 3/4" in the rear and every time i'd hit a bump it would bottom out even at the stiffest preload setting. That 's riding solo at 175lbs.
Never thought of the kickstand...always a bigger and more expensive project than you think!Lowered my bike 2 inches and the kickstand is scraping the ground every time I turn left. I bought a shorter kickstand to see if that helps.
The adjustable lowering kit is the best way to go. I just extended the dogbones. I dragged the kick stand at just about every left turn. I soon got used to it and thought it was cool for the people behind me to see a spark show. :mrgreen:I'm 210lbs. so I think I will get an adjustable lowering kit that goes from stock to 1,2, or 3 inches so I can adjust as needed.
