Hi,
I have a female friend who just purchased a 2002 883 Sporty. I was worried that the bike was going to be too big for her to handle. But after seeing her on the bike, I think she will be fine. The bike would be perfect for her if the seat was about 3-4 inches lower due to her small inseam. Can anyone recommend a lowering kit for the 2002 Sportys? Is this the type of mod we should approach to get the seat heighth lowered?
thanks,
Craig

Re: Lowering Sporty...

Stratboy,

White Bros. lowering kit or short shocks in addition to a Badlander or Slammer seat will put her in the weeds. Remember, lowering the rear will effect the rake and slow down the steering somewhat. I prefer short shocks to a lowering kit.

Check out Ebay. I picked up a pair of new take off 12 1/2'' Dyna shocks for $40.

Later,

Mike
