on a bike that is 2.5 inches lower, is it alot harder to do wheelies?
what kind of stunts will be harder with a lowered bike in general?

all of them. With a lower center of gravity the bike will be less likely to do wheelies, stoppies which are the basics of just about any stunt out there (with the exception of the climbing on the bike while its going, or skying beside it, both of which will remain unaffected)

haha, first time I tried skitching I had to slow the bike and run/walk it to a stop, couldnt get back on, haha. Funny stuff. Yeah lowered bikes are good for one thing, going in a straight line on two wheels, okay one wheel if you count pow pow power wheellies:p . If dragging aint youre thing, put that thing back to stock. I dint notice what bike you have but if it aint a busa or a 14, it aint got no business being dropped anyway:twofinger . Just playing man, whats your experience and what kind of riding do you do/plan on doing?

well i had a 04 r6, but i didint do any stunting anyway, but i am looking at getting an 07 gsxr 600 and the one i am looking at as been lowered 2 inches. it feels great, i love the stance, but i am thinking of getting into some stunts from here and there, and i didnt know how much harder it would be to learn, for basic wheelies and stuff, nothing major.

Thats will be a great bike!! My advice is to put it at stock height, not only will stunts be easier, even minor once in a while stuff, but the bike will handle better in the twisties too. IMHO that is one of the best track bikes out, why someone would drop it is beyond me. Its really a looks/trend thing on a otherwise stock 600, and to me its just not worth the performance loss. I say get the bike if the deal is right, put it at stock height, and have fun riding a killer machine. Good luck.
