    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I don't know off hand the answer, but a search should yield it for you if another doesn't answer soon. Member Rhodetrip would be a great source for you, as he did this to the Mrs.' bike. I find using a regular search engine like Bing or Google produce better results than the forum search tool. Just narrow it to this site only. Put something like this in the search bar...

    site:tw200forum.com lowering or vstar shock, etc.

    Oh, and welcome!

    Also, you don't have to get a different shock. You can drill a lower mounting hole for the stock shock.

    Like lrpper said above you can drill the swing arm and drop the forks in the tripple trees. My wife is 5'1" and can flat foot.

    Nels, I replied to your PM. Here is the photo showing both shocks:



    Custom Shock set up for her weight and riding style. Same length as the V-Star shock.
