I saw a lowering kit(bracket and bolts) to lower my '02 FXD. Has anyone had any experiance with these things? Apparently they just move the shock back slightly. How much swing would I lose in height and will it rub the fender under loads and potholes? Thanks in advance for your help.

I have one of those kits installed on my 01 FXDWG. It's ok for a temporary thing. I don't bottom out and it does lower the bike quite a bit. I probably wouldn't ride 2-up though. With the stock shock travel, you're sure to bottom out with a passenger. I like the way it looks with the shocks laid back at more of an angle, but am planning to get some new, shorter shocks in the very near future. I've had it on my bike for the last 4000 miles or so am am happy with it.

Hope I helped,
Tony
