I'd be remiss if I didn't offer this input. Your mileage may vary.
I had a White Bros. 1" or 1 1/2" rear lowering kit on my Glide for a while, but ended up removing it because when me and the wife would ride together (and sometimes when I was by myself,) I would hear something scrubbing under the rear fender. I never figured out what it was. I removed the lowering kit and the scrubbing subsided.
Fast forward to the last couple weeks. I noticed my right turn signal/running light was out. I swapped bulbs between the left and right lights and both were good. I removed the Kuryakyn running light module and connected it stock, but the right light was still out. Since I thought I was going to need a new socket, I just went ahead to the dealership Saturday and let them look at it. What ended up being the problem was two of the clips that hold the rear light harness to the inside of the fender were damaged or missing. The harness sagged and the tire rubbed through the loom, cutting the wire to the right light. The tech had to drop the rear wheel to get to everything. He repaired the broken wire, taped up one wire where it was starting to cut through the casing, and repaired the loom, replacing both plastic clips while he was at it. I'm good to go now, but $127 lighter (and that was a hook up, as I have "people" at the dealership who know and look after me.)
Just remember if you hear a scrubbing sound, look into it right away. Don't screw around like I did.
