Pick up a new 2006 this past Saturday for my wife. I need to lower it 1" and shave the seat down just a little and then add the bar risers. My question...Who makes the best lowering link and has anyone used Motorcycle Larry's riser and do you like it. This is a great bike, but she is on her TIP toes right now. She just needs a little help. Thanks for all the help

I've got Larry's Riser. It took a lot of the strain off of a previously damaged shoulder. My only concern it the front brake line. It seems a little tight to me. I intend to have it replaced with one an inch longer. There are some others on this forum that have them. That's were I got my info. Easy to install. As I recall the instructions don't specifically refer to the littlest Ninja, but it shouldn't be a problem.

Hello and welcome steelpony :)

FOG is making what we refer to as dogbones.

Basically it's a replacement part for the rear suspension that could change the height of the bike.

I don't have those on my bike, but a lot of peoples here seems to love them very much.

FOG's parts are also of the best quality :)

dogbones raise, and lowering links lower, or are they two terms for the same thing?

pretty much

One is longer (to lower the bike) while the other is shorter (to raise it)

I have M/C Larry's risers and like them. No problem with my brake line. Great riding position, easier on back and better leverage in turns.
