Rear drop brackets - quick question
A buddy gave me some lowering brackets and a set of his stock rear shocks. I'm currently running the stock 13"ers on my 08 RG. My plan is to send the spare shocks out to bitchinbaggers to have them cut down to size for me, all while still having my shocks on so I can continue to ride.
I want to temporarily install these rear drop brackets so that I can play around with the ride height. I'm doing this so that I know exactly how much I want the shocks cut down. I do not have a bike lift. Can I remove the stock shocks to install these drop brackets with the bike on the side stand? Or do I need access to a bike lift?
I was hoping for a quick 45 minute job sitting in the garage tonight so that I could give it a test ride to work tomorrow morning in a lowered state to feel her out!
Also, how low can I go with the blocks before I have a problem with rubbing the wiring on the inside of the fender that I've read about?
I know that shocks are the way to go, and that is my goal with this project. Remember, I am doing the blocks as they were given to me and I want to test different ride heights to see what I like the best. I only say this because I know that people with chime in with their negativity against lowering blocks. I DO agree with you. This is for testing purposes only so that I can send my spare shocks to bitchinbaggers to get cut down.
Thanks in advance!!
