    My Mexican friend is to short. How do I lower this bike for him. I have already did the forks but need more.

    Your friend first needs to see if a lowered seat will do it for him, that's the easiest and cheapest trick.

    A more expensive option will be to get a shorter rear shock. The new F650GS Twin is shorter than the F800GS, and sports an 800 cc motor.

    He just bought this bike 4 days ago. He has dropped it 2 times. I would think the 600 had a 600 engine. To late now.
