Update on lowering crossrunner
« on: November 19, 2011, 05:08:39 AM »
Had a little research done here down under on the various options to lowering the crossrunner  (for me) i probably would like at least 35mm so did a trial on reversing the lower link " triangles " and as true to the web lowered 18mm  (3/4 inch) which surprisingly did help ( depending which pants i wore ) but still need more ... next step altering ( i think ) a vfr1200 adjustable lower  "dogbone" link so works underway with this trial . Had comments from our local Ohlins supplier that the only way to achieve this mod correctly is to modify/replace the main rear shock he mite be right so guess see where this path takes me.  :084: On other thoughts mounted the Garmin 550 extended the two cover mount bolts under the handle bar covers with threaded rod and attached the Ram with a piece of 12x12mm alloy rod, mounted centrally looks great being such a well designed symmetrical bike will find how to post some pics when i get the lowering thing sorted ... Cheers to all . :152:

I think there is now a specific mount for GPS which does use the mounting bar under the bar covers. I used these plus a single RAM ball mount and longer bolts. Had to cut a hole through the bar shrouds though - is that what you had to do as well?

Yes was quite simple drilled two 8mm holes and one smaller ( for the power cable ) through the centre of the shroud, very neat , i know pics would be much more enlightening. Not sure where the power came from had a friend connect it i think some where to the headlamp must check up on that . There is so much overseas (Europe)  (accessory wise ) only the basic is starting to arrive Still waiting for a centre stand at $800.oo nz Will have to cut down once the lowering is sorted. :164:

If you haven't already ordered stand, wouldn't the stand off a vfr vtec fit as frame is same and the stand would be shorter ???
Or is the stand the same ???

Finally received the Soupys Adjustable lowering link and fitted, left the triangular links in there moved position ( i got about 18mm with reversing those) the whole bike has dropped  only 26mm with this mod must say starting to feel more confident even with this much ( the goal ideally would be 35-40mm ) So in my haste have also ordered the Matisse 35mm lowering "triangles" hopefully to be able to stretch the Adjustable lower link further (or maby even go back to the original "dogbone" link) My concern at present is that the link is about 1.5mm from the bottom of the shock some say they grind a little off that part for more clearance ... Not too keen on that idea !! Anyway awaiting triangles to see what options arise ...... On another note attached a pic of the quick homemade GPS mount as mentioned earlier seems to work great excellent position and looks good symmetrical       Cheers all
