Fairing and lowering kit
« on: August 03, 2017, 17:37:07 PM »

Just curious if anyone can recommend a batwing style fairing or if any of you all have lowered your drifters?

  Driftingal did lower her bike that I know of, and not sure of whom else has done the mod, but wait a bit and they will come on and let you know.

Dunno if this can help ya out, but a guy over this Forum lowered the front end of his bike by raising the forks from the triple clamps.

I lowered mine an inch that way---  raised the fork tubes up 1" past the top of the upper triple tree.

One of my 01 Drifter 800's came with a lowering kit.  I think it is scootworks, but I'm not sure.  Not sure I like it because it gets the floorboards on the payment way too quick in the turns.  I'm going to put that bike up for sale in the next couple of weeks and depending on who buys the bike, the lowering kit may be for sale separately.
