Please do not lower your R. They were never designed for that low mean look. They are meant to be ridden. Also if lowered too much the swingarm will hit the tank I believe. I don't own an R but with all I have read,, stay stock height. Others way more knowledgeable then me will chime in I'm sure.
Totally agree. The R is a different animal for a very specific reason. Moler is correct about the fuel tank problem. If you want the look of a std model then buy a std one. The R is going to be the collectable one in the future.
Yea, I got mine ! And looking for 1/4 " longer shocks ! Ainghelb dont forget if yo want to lower the rear just look at the shock preload setting - if it's on step 4 or 5 just back it off to step 2 or 3 that'll drop it about an inch 26 MM or so. It'll also make it steer like a pig unless you drop the triple clamps down on the fork legs about 20 MM. I'd just ride the bike & get used to it - I'm happy with the seat height on my R I'd never lower it - it's the best handling feature H-D built into the bike - other than the steering head / fork angle. Save The R's !

anybody has changed the oil on later models with an inverted fork without changing the seal.
I want to change the fork oil on my 2014 V rod Muscle to heavy type one without exposing the seal or changing them just like on any fork. Anyone of you folks can confirm that.
Hey everyone I have a question I couldn’t find a definitive answer to so I’m sorry if I missed it and you’ve all gone over it already.

I swapped my 180 Bridgestone Excedra in the rear yesterday, for an Avon 200/55vr18 AV92.
It's been one day, and about 200 miles later, I do not like the 200.
I took a canyon today, and the bike needs to be PUSHED into a turn, it doesn't feel nimble at all.
With my 180, the bike dropped...
Has anyone tried 8-Ball wheels on a VRSCA? Or does anyone know of a website (maybe for a wheel company) that would help me figure out if a bearing swap would be enough to get them on the axles or maybe if Victory maybe copied Harley close enough to use the stock brake mounts too?
