I am a new rider who loves the tw, and I need some help! I am short and need to lower the bike as much possible without messing with the seat. Help!

There are a number of threads on lowering.



A few ideas are:

Drilling a new mount hole on the swing-arm to move the bottom of the shock further back.

Changing the pre-load on the stock shock by moving the spring retaining clip (undocumented mod not found in the service manuals).

Buying/installing a different shock (shorter or lighter spring).



And finally, adjusting the front triple-trees lower on the fork tubes to match the drop in the rear.



Just remember that you will be reducing your available suspension travel.

He/She has been busy.
Jeeze....;)
Diane has grown into hers. I originally dropped the front a bit, more of a placebo than anything I think. After a while, we agreed to raise it back up.
When I suggest she's one day going to be ready for a taller, different bike, I almost know what it's like to get between a bear and her cub... :eek:

Actually, there are many reasons for the lack of response in giving thanks, and a lack of gratitude is not one. Proverbs 18:13 To answer before listening--that is folly and shame.
