Hi, got my m800 a few montts ago & finally got round to fitting the new bones onto her last w/end with a lot of help from my other half :) .....She has dropped down by 2inches which is great for me as I can now put my feet down properly,  she seems to handle so much better too. 

Thanks to those on here that have already posted about how to do this.

Will post a pic when I've worked out how to do that lol.

Sounds good!  Fitted lowering bones 3498837457 I'm after lowering my C800 by 2 inches so it'll be interesting to see yours, Where'd you get your lowering bones from? I can only find them from the USA.

Nice one, looking forward to the pics.


PS, get the free Photobucket, that's the easiest way and upload to there, then pop a link of the photo into a post.

Peter, it went down by 2 inches, so I went from having to use tippy toes, to being able to put my feet flat on the ground.   Fitted lowering bones 215375

Does anyone know of a UK supplier for these 2" lowering bones? The one's from the states are £15 with £15 delivery  affraid  I don't mind paying £30 but the £15 delivery is gnawing at me because it's a rip off   Fitted lowering bones 594857

A 2" drop is a good dramatic change, surely any lower than that is just going lower for the sake of going lower?

I've heard that you can lower it by 3 inches, mine was lowered by 2 inches & my knees are slightly bent when my feet are on the floor I'm 5 feet 2 inches.

Depends what look you want I suppose, also if you lowered it more would you have to put in a smaller rear tyre???

3 Inches is about the lowest you could go without having serious corner scraping issues I'd have thought? 2 Inches is a nice happy drop without uprating the rear spring, especially if you have a pillion most of the time.

Yay go for it Marcin & Morgan.... Marcin I love the look of apes on a bike (my ol man has 19inch apes on 2inch risers on his vn1500), on the other hand I'm still trying to workout what bars I want so far 8/10inch apes or z bars are winning lol.
