If you lower both ends of the bike by the same amount, it will not have any dramatic mishandling traits. After looking at that piece, I will have to take the shock out of the bike downstairs to see what I can do about machining a smaller unit for my daughter to ride her bike with more confidence when coming to a full stop.

That last one looks like a sort of "bone" system whereas the others require you to remove an end off the original shock and replace it with their version. Unfortunatley there is no further adjustment, it is a single length drop.

People are not indicating if they are lowering an "R" or a "GS" as they are a little different. I know the Rally-Raid product is a little more expensive... but it is not much more than the cost of the lower seat. It is also height adjustable so you can fine tune or if you sell your bike later the height can be raised back up to normal easily.

I have the "GS" and I will eventually lower it and will get the Rally-Raid product or one like it. I think they offer some kind of discount to forum members so I would contact them if interested.

I have seen videos of people removing the stock end and it is not as easy as it sounds if you don't have the right equipment, gloves, and torch required. For me, I would be more at ease changing a shock than modifying one.

I am shorter with a 28-29" inseam and am surviving on my GS with either hiking boot or Adventure boots to get the height I need to put one foot down (I still have to slide over a little)
