First of all, I have done a search, I have a couple more specific questions.
I'm passing on my little 250 to my wife, who is taking the riding course this spring. Problem is, she's vertically challenged...she's barely 5 feet and currently cannot tippytoe on both sides of the bike. I'm thinking I need to lower the bike/shave the seat.
1.)I know most of you recomment RMR suspensions, but they're all the way out in Abbotsford. Any recommendations for a place that can do it in the lower mainland?
2.) Also, I'm buying a lowering kit that has both rear lowering links and front lowering block/handle bar risers that will also allow the front to be lowered an inch. Seems most people recommend getting suspension adjusted after lowering the rear, but if the front is also lowered, any further suspension work needed?
3.) Are there differences in lowering links? I'm comparing the Roaring Toyz to the Soupy's performance one. Soupy's is quite a bit more expensive, but if you look at the design of the two, they're different. Is any of the two better design?
4.) I've read that some people found that with the handle bar risers, the clutch and brake cables are a little stressed, any solutions for that?
Thanks for all the help!
