Please take a look at the link below and tell me if these are the links I need to lower my bike.

Is this a good price?

What do you think Baby??

I think it should fit model years 06, 07, and 08.
And the price is lower than anything else out there (other than possibly used ones).

i was just going to email that to you? funnny. yeah its a great price but look at the higth adjustments, 2-4. nothing more nothing less. i was hoping to find you 1-3. that would be better. cause an inch would be perfect for you.

A two-inch drop will play havoc with your suspension geometry. Thicker-soled boots maybe?

I agree. If you can do without lowering links, do it. You will eventually learn to compensate for your height. I've always heard that if you lower your bike, it will drive differently. I've never lowered mine, so I can't speak from experience so I guess do whatever makes you feel more comfortable.

i have lowered mine 3 inches, yes it changes the geometry. only in a red rock cinario, she wont be riding like that for a long time.( no offense cheryl). lowering mine helped me gain confidence then eventually i raised it back up. now i have absolutely no problem with my bike. though i cant put both my feet on the ground, i use one foot! making slow turns, you wont feel the bikes changes as far as lowering it! high speed, huge difference. i wouldnt recomend having it low and doing 70mph through red rock. my .02!

I lowered my rear 1 inch, lowered my front 1 inch, the only thing it did was make my wrists hurt less (from not leaning so far forward) made my lower back not ache as much, and lowering it evenly made the steering quicker since the wheel base is shorter from lowering the front.

I also shaved 2 inches out of my seat, that helped a lot. The seat height isn't really that high on the TL, it's just so wide you have to straddle the thing like you're riding a bull, which is exactly what riding a TL is like!

Here ya go, 2008 GSXR600 Lowering Links
This will give you exactly 2" lower in the rear, we can lower the front to compensate for the lower rear. If you just lower the rear your steering will be considerably slower.
They're only $57.90, chrome or black, free shipping.
