5ft11in newbie cant touch the ground on 2008 drz40 6 years, 4 months ago #4252

The previous owner said he just winds it down? How? Does this upset handling, are budget links available? thanks

Your taller than a lot of guys I have seen riding a DRZ , lowering links do take away a lot of suspension travel , maybe give it a few more weeks to get used to it ..

You can get adjustable links for the DRZ - another member on here has them and we have adjusted his a couple of times to get the right height without too much loss of rear suspension - but in saying that it still does have affect on it.
They are like these ones - but you would have to do a search for the exact ones

Just another happy DRZ'er :) with just about all the mods done I need ( or that the wife will allow)

My short arsed mate dropped 2 inches in seat height by sliding the forks through the clamps and having the internals of the rear shock altered.

Unfortunately the guy who did the suspension work died recently.

I am 5 '11" too and I ended up taking a bit of foam out of the anterior part of the seat near the tank junction. I only ever sit there when going around corners or getting off the bike. I didn't want to loose travel as I hit my feet on the ground often enough at speed as is.
