Lowering a 96 Speed Triple questions
Howdy all. Just dropping in from the twins boards to get some advice to help a friend. He has a 96 Speed Triple and wants to lower the back to get more sure-footed at stops. He's somewhat inseam-challenged.
So, I'd like to know how much you can lower the bike without really slamming it down? Something lower, yet still looks and rides OK. Case in point, you can lower a Bonneville 1" and the bike still works and looks right. He's no canyon carver I assure you.
Additionally, I recall from some years ago being told that there was a change to the stock suspension around 1996 and the serial number will indicate which version it is. True?
