    Rear drop kit?

    Anyone lowered the rear via lowering blocks? Looking for feedback on 1 or 2 if anyone has done it.

    Nope, maybe someone has. Maybe post in general discussions.

    I've used lowering blocks in the past and to be honest, the ride is very harsh with them simply because they position the shocks at an angle that they are not engineered to function properly.

    They are certainly an economical way to lower the bike but I feel if budget is not an issue, going with a shorter set of shocks would be the route I would recommend.

    Hope this helps!!

    I went with these Burley shocks lowered my bike by 1 1/2" ride is Ok better than stock but not by much learn your new lean angle and by all means avoid large pot holes. Agree lower shocks better than lowering kit. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...UaAlabEALw_wcB good luck and ride safe.

    I just bought a 2021. HD lowered it with the kit. Rode 100 miles with the wife. Belt came up and ate the handle almost off the shock adjustment. Scheduled for HD tomorrow. They said they've never seen this. Will update on the solution.
