I called Phildirt to tell him about this thread. Caught him on I5 driving to Modesto. He almost drove off the road he was laughing so hard. I think the Yota dog saved it.
my favorite bike - R1200GS

I got the Hyperpro 25mm lowering Kit, SP BM08-SSC018. The fork and shock springs are the Rising Rate Springs, so I don't know the spring rate. I was told it varies as the spring compresses. The more compression the higher the spring rate. Still waiting for the shock spring to get here. I needed to get the bike a little bit lower so I can better reach the ground. So this was to lower the bike and get a better springs than stock. I put in the new fork springs today. I can see the bike is a little lower in the front with the stock shock spring. After I get the new shock spring in I will do a test ride and see how the new suspension works.

If you don't know where your going don't lead!
