    lowering

    I bought a 92 Suzuki Katana GSX600F i want to lower it because i am only 5'2 and i am uncomfortable stopping with only one foot. The only thing that i have found online to lower it is adjustable links and i do not want to go that route. What are some good options?

    you could soften your spring. but the lowering link is your best bet.
    We gain knowledge by watching, doing, listening, and teaching. Not by insulting. We all can say mean things nicely.

    The only good, practical solution to this problem is:

    Boots with thicker soles.
    OR
    Taking some padding out of the seat so you sit lower.

    You should not modify the suspension as that might make it handle badly.

    Of course, there always is trading it in on a bike that has a lower "inseam".
    Don't believe everything that you think.
