Lust lowering kit
« on: Jun 21, 2021, 11:41 AM »
Hi Guy's,

I've ordered a lust lowering kit for my 2016 650, 

What do you do with the remote adjuster ?


thanks

kevin

The instruction says "use a giant adjustable wrench to bend it up/back" but this was not so easy. I bent mine to an extreme position, damaging it heavily and because of the changed position and shortness of the adjusting cable, I was only able to fasten it back using one of the two bolt holes. Not an ideal solution but as long as the bolt holds and the cable does not break, I don't mind. I only mind that Lust pretty much pees on their customer with this, they couldn't make a proper relocating bracket or decent instructions. Instructions are available only on small low quality photocopy that comes with the block and they haven't put in more than half an hour of work to come up with the vague dismissive suggestions and small blurry images.

That being said, I am happy with the bike as it is after lowering, I think in case of the v650, lowering actually improves the bike. It is a heightened ER-6N and it seems they went just an inch too far with it. That is, of course, when you weigh 145 lbs and measure 5'8''. Perhaps 300-pound people compress the suspension anyway so that they get the same lowering effect without modification.

have to agree, Lust are a joke, i was tempted to send mine back after doing damage to my bike trying to bend the bracket as they suggest, i ended up doing the same as you with the remote resevoir

the front should be dropped 25mm, according the LR.  Initially, I dropped it only 10mm and the rear shock felt too harsh.  No sure why, the change in geometry someone caused it.
