**** When ordering a lowering shock, to ensure the parked stability of your bike after it has been lowered, we recommend using shorter kick stand and/or the center stand.
**** The conversion of the replacement springs should be made by a specialist workshop.
**** Important: With this suspension solution, we recommend replacing the rear and front shock absorbers together. This is the only way to achieve the best possible handling with this premium suspension system.
