    How much would this drop the seat height on a 2010 990R. I am considering buying one but I'm a little vertically challenged!! :D

    Received and mounted forks, shock, side stand & centre stand. I can actually touch the ground flat footed. much easier to ride around town in stop & go traffic. Hope my "R" suspension works as well for you. Cheers Nechako :D
