Talking HAGON 2" Shorter Shock

Anyone fit one of these, I must admit to struggling with the CAT due to my wekened right wrist (accident see previous threads). I have the 1 " shorter HAGON and wondered if anyone had gone for the full pygmy Tiger option? If so what decks out and how easy?

Talking I put the lower seat and lowering link no problem

54 year old guy here legs are not what they use to be plus I am only 5' 7" tall my dealer installed a lower link and lowered the front forks which dropped the bike 1.25 inches plus I put the lower seat on for another .5 inches those changes did not change any of the handling characterics and saturday I did a hard corner as hard as I am going to do which I think is very low to the ground and it did not bottom out love my 07 tiger tman
