Is there a lowering kit available?
« on: May 11, 2018, 08:42:52 PM »
I was wondering if anyone knows of a lowering kit suitable for a 2018 Crossrunner.

Hi don't have one myself but Lust Racing do them, once fitted you may have to lower the front a bit to balance things out.

I have a set from Hyperpro.
Shorter progressive front springs and a shorter rear spring.

You will not recognize your own bike  :062:

this will fit the 2018 version also

Thank you for the replies guys. Hopefully I won’t need to lower it but it’s good to have the info.

I haveLUST lowering links for the 2015 vfr800x which I had removed when I bought the bike .. I am in maidstone - if you want / need them ...message me and you can have them ( for a coffee! )
Dont forget the seat lowers ..by removing 3 spacers ..thats all I needed  ( 5'9")

Thank you that’s very generous of you but I had ordered a kit to be fitted at the first service before I read your post. I already have the seat on the lowest position but thanks for the info.

make sure the side stand is good for length ; sometimes lowering means it stands too upright and can role off stand ; not sure with xrossrunner if this happens ; ask dealer fitting lowering links ...

I'm in the opposite position!! I have just got a 2013 VFR that has been lowered and because I'm quite leggy I need it raising. Does anybody have any original links and bolts that would be compatible with the 2013 model?
My face is like reading in a car, ok for the first 5 minutes but then it makes you feel sick.
