    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.

    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.

    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.
