I used to own a softail that I installed a rear lowering kit on. The bike looked really KOOL slammed. But rode terrible. Bottomed out over the littlest bumps. Changed to geometry of the front end also. Basically the ride SUCKED. Tried to raise the back end back up with the adjustable lowering kit. Raised it all the way. The ride still SUCKED. Lowering a bike you have to do the front and back suspension at the same time. On the downside you will loose your lean angle and will not be able to lay the bike over in corners very far. In my opinion it may look Kool, but the negatives will out weigh everything else. I will never lower another bike ever.
If your going to do something give it all you got, might be the last time you ever do it !!!
