Lowers suspension

Postby Potter » Mon Sep 13, 2021 10:13 am

Hi folks
My goto bike is my R1200 GS, the best bike I've ever owned! (late 2010)
BUT I am getting a little long in the tooth and short in the leg, and desperately want to keep my bike.
Can I get a 'dealer fit' or DIY kit to lower the front and rear suspension.
Yours hopefully
Dave B.

Hi
search the site for "Ram adjustable paralever arm" or similar, TJ posted stuff about it to lower paralever bikes. He arranged CLUB members discount but I dont know if it is still ongoing

You can get shocks built with a lower ride height, Hagons will do it. but it’s a £600+ investment.
