Ya ive heard they dont handle very well either. But i guess you can sacafraice (somethin like that) handling for you to be able to ride it. I rather see someone on a lowered bike than no bike at all. I talked to a chick up in detroit about that. Shes got hers lowered and loves it! Its all up to the person.

Heya Stephanie,

YOu can pick up lowering links for your bike at several sites but this was reccomended:
http://www.adjustmenttech.com/

However, I had my lowerlink machined by a good friend of mines (he made it himself) by looking at the original stock one, then fashioning it himself. Looks like the original, but its "longer" than the stock.

Nice work on his.

See my sig. Im a "short" rider myself, & same year as your bike.

Q: What the hell kinda bike can a girl at 5'1" ride?
A: Anything she damn well pleases ^_~
