Hi I am wondering if it is possible to advertise on your site? If so how much? I have a wonderful item for the Concours rider. It is a lowering rocker arm to low the seat. I am looking for some avenues to help me advertise my new item. Kawasaki Concours Lowering Rocker arm is one of the hottest items to hit the market.

Hi, I bought one of the Kawasaki Concours Lowering rocker arm that Howard is selling. And it works great. I can now put my feet flat. Very easy to install. email Howard

Being a motorcycle mechanic for the past 30 years naturally I am always a little skeptical about new products, and such was the case with the new lowering rocker arm. Ever since I bought my Kawasaki Concours the #1 problem has been that the bike was just too tall. I struggled for years with tip-toeing at stop lights and wanted a solution. When I heard about the new lowering rocker, I knew I had to give it a try. And WOW, what a difference.
The installation was a breeze, and the installation instructions were great.
For the first time I can actually flat foot it at stop signs, and even have a little extra bend in the knees. Low speed handling is greatly improved, and the ride is as smooth as glass. And to top it all off the bike just looks so cool with the new lowered look. Thanks again guys for bringing this product to market.

This is littlejackyellow.

I just bought a new kawasaki concours a few months ago. I really like the handling and performance of this bike. However my short 5'6"stature made it difficult to back this thing up and get a firm footing at stop lights. I looked everywhere for lowering links for this bike but to no avail. The only option was a expensive cut-down rear shock. Then I saw your lowering arm on ebay. I bid and won and received a one inch lowering arm from you. Installation was a snap. I then slid my outer fork tubes up one inch in the triple clamps. This really made a difference in getting a firm footing at stops and backing up! Thanx for a great product!

i have klr650-08, recently I installed 1 1/2 dog bones. However, when I tried to lower the front end to match the dog bone drop, after loosening the bolts/nuts on the two fork shafts and releasing the tension on the forks by loosening the bolt on the front axle I still can not get the bike to lower on the shafts. I even tried spreading the shaft grips,slightly. The nuts/bolts are finger loose. I tried tapping the frame at the handle bar area. I am still not able to lower the front end.

what am i doing wrong ? help...

aaahh...finally....found mr. wizard...turns out he had the same problem....what he did was turn the tubes with his hand and released the tension and the grips slipped down...I couldn't get the tubes to move so I put a socket and rachet to the top bolts that hold the tubes in place. I moved them back and forth then pounded the handle bar grips with the palms of hands until the tubes reached the desire height ( one inch) presto...done...then I tightened every thing back up...

OK, I'm really interested. Just rode home today with an '08 Concours 14. At stops, I'm on tippy-toes. Whatta you got? Please reply to grstar@swbell.net. I've already ordered a set of handlebar risers from JenMar which will allow me to lower the front end an inch or so.
Thanks,
