Lowered BCR
Just to give some heads up, I had a post back in Jan about lowered Wilburs Shocks, I gotem in Feb (been collecting dust). I'll be back to states this week, and plan on installing them this weekend. I'll do the pics before and after. Il check other post for tips on the front shock, looks like a little time in doing that one..

Other than pulling the plastic, it's really simple....maybe easier than the rear cos you don't have to mess with the exhaust to get the lower bolt out. Here's my bike now awaiting it's Ohlins rebuild.

Nice Stand, guess I might have to get one of those. Was thinking of doing it one shock at a time.

Ok finally got it done, went camping. anyways rear shock was almost flawless. Evaporator cannister had to be relocated back outside due to the shock reservoir. Made a new "L"-ish bracket to clear tire and system cases. Front shock no ploblems, and I was not left with any extra parts/screws. I also added a rear tire hugger, shorter side-stand and tall BMW widscreen. These shocks were lowered by Wilbers 2.5 in(60mm). The ride, Being that I havent rode since late August '06 it was different. But I liked it, and I can flat foot it.

Now all you have to do is raise those bars and get a center stand... oh wait that would be a regular S.;)

Seriously it does look nice and I can't imagine riding with out being able to firmly plant both feet on the ground. With my 32" inseam and the shortness of the stock S I have no problem getting around.

signit98 05-31-2007 01:37 PM ERIOUSLY went through the effort of relocating the cannister... AND EVEN making a custom bracket for it???

If you ever need another one, let me know... I still have my cannister laying around somewhere...
