2011 Bullet C5 lowering kit
« on: March 12, 2012, 07:53:03 PM »
Hi All,
I got my bike with the lowering kit installed - Shocks, shorter seat spring, mount kit.
With this I see the saddle seat is not flushed with the tank. So the saddle was removed to see if any adjustment could be done. There is a bracket that holds the seat at an angle which makes it flush with the original seat spring. But with the shorter spring the front of the seat (the foam area that touches the tank) is 1/3rd of an inch away from the tank.
I don't like the fact that it doesn't have flush installation on my bike.

Here is another thread where the lowering kit is installed and the front seat is properly flushed.

Is there any way to do this installation such that the saddle seats front is flushed to the tank?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

What are the shocks that come with that kit? I just bought a 2000 bullet 500, and the previous owner installed struts instead of the stock shocks. I like the lower seat position and the overall look, but was thinking of installing short shocks to keep the look while loosening up the ride a little.  ;)

Yes. Thank you. But I was wondering if you knew the specifics of the size of the shocks. The store page doesn't give that detail. I was wondering about buying just the shocks. Not the whole kit.
