Default Can I lower my 1995 Honda CBR600F3?

Can I lower a 95'Honda Cbr f3 600 down 2 or 2.5 inches safely without any issues? My girlfriend's only 5'2"and about 110 lbs and needs it down a bit lower. She already lowered it 1 inch but it's not quite enough. What can I do to help her out????

get her thicker shoes!I wouldn't recommend lowering it at all. You'll throw off the geometries.You might be able to try for an aftermarket seat.

You can get shorter dog bones in the rear linkage to adjust the height or you can get a shorter/adjustable shock. You could also take some of the foam out of the seat.

if you lower the rear ...you should lower the front as well...lowering links in the rear..slide the forks through the tripple trees at the front( if you cant do this you may need to cut the fork springs )you will end up with less ground clearance ... so cornering will be a bit slower..
