Lowering the BMW R1100GS
I recently purchased a set of Hyperpro lowering spring kit for my 96 1100GS. After a week of riding here is my personal view and opinion:
I am 5'7" (170cm)/ 190Lbs (85Kg).
a. I can now put both of my feet firmly on the ground. (30MM Drop)
b. The bike does not lean excessively when place on the side stand.
c. They are easy to replace.
a. It definitely changes the center of balance towards the rear.
b. Even with a full tank of fuel, and a tank bag it feels a bit light on the front fork.
I am taking it easy for the time being and learning to become one her again. She is my daily driver and I don't do any type of off road.
I hope this help someone looking at doing the same.
