Installed the lowering links

on my 99 . Now I can sit flat footed on my bike. I am going to test ride it either today or tomorrow and see if I need to lower the front to match.

Update./ Got it out on the road. From what I can tell from a short ride it seems to handle the same with out lowering the front. I am now gonna double check everything is still tight after the test ride.
It makes a world of difference in how the bike feels while stopped. I no longer feel the bike is at all heavy or difficult to keep upright, and backing up is a breeze.

How about the side stand? I had to shorten mine.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
