Just arrived..... well nearly
« on: March 16, 2018, 16:21:35 »
Soon to be proud owner of a vstrom 650. Little higher tan I am used to though. Lower the suspension and lose the rubber pads under the seat. Will that help. Any advice gladly received

Hello Janmat  :welcome:

ask away in the vstrom specific section, and also use the search function, you'll find lots of ideas on how to lower! :) :) :thumb:

Hello and  :welcome2:
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
