I picked up an 06 DR650 Friday and with a 27" inseam there was no way I was touching even a toe to the ground. So my buddy and I brought her into the living room and took the bolt out the bottom of the shock. Then we had a hell of a time getting it back in the higher hole(Lower setting) but finally got er back together but still a little on the high side. Loosend all 6 bolts on the fork and lowered the front end a good 1-1/4. Hudge differance I actually felt allot better bout the bike. Like street rider said, it works great and easy. Just ordered the Gell seat and with that I just may be able to put a heel down. I'm currious what he did about his kickstand. VFR870 said cut 2" I'm only cuting 5/8" out and am concered it will be too much. It will stand up right on flat pavement so don't THINK it needs much.
