I'm looking for info on lowering my vrod. Is there a rear suspension kit or bracket? I want to lower just an 1". I'm also looking for a new style of seat.
Is there someone that knows where to get after market parts for the vrod.
Any info is appreciated!
Thanks, Tori

there are quite a few options depending on how much you want to spend..
you can do something like progressive 440's which most on this forum runs... if you have an A model bike you can run the DX (night rod special) rear shock to lower your bike almost an inch. Harley makes a 1" lowering shock which is cheaper than the 440's. And there is a guy that modifies stock shocks and sends them back lowered (skullman)

the 440's are gonna be your best bet for an improved ride AND lowered stance. The HD shocks will work but they arent any better of a shock than the stockers.


and BTW welcome to the boards

:welcome: Tori!!!

Max did a great write-up on seat options a while back... what are you looking for? Lower? Forward? Back? Taller??? Ther are many options - you can go comfort, function. looks - or some combination of the three.
