I've got a kinda generic question for you guys. If I lowered the rear about an inch without lowering the forks how exactly would that effect the handling. Would it make the front slower/ more stable or quicker/ more twitchy? I would use this for gravel roading not any single track. Comming of street bike this bike seems plenty fast handling to me. Slower steering might not be a bad thing for me. I had been looking for a DR650 but found a good deal on a DRZ400 so I bought it. It's just a little tall for me and I am trying to plan my mods before I start. Thanks again, Murf Sorry, I'm in the wrong place!
