Lowering Kits

Harley-Davidson Lowrider - lowering is the program

To complement the lowered front fork, the rear end must of course also be lowered. Only in this way does the Harley Sportster or Dyna low rider have a uniform level, and you also avoid excessive changes to the steering head angle and steering behavior.

How to lower the rear end?

There are a number of possibilities:

  • a complete kit ("slammer") for front and rear from Burly Brand
  • shorter shock absorbers from Progressive Suspension
  • the actual lowering kits that change the shock linkage angle (flat angle mounted shocks result in lower suspension height)
  • Adjustment kits for shock absorbers

If you don't have anything yet, a slammer kit might be your choice. If there is nothing suitable, you look for shorter fork springs and shock absorbers in combination. If you want to try it out first, you might opt for a Burly Brand lowering kit, or an adjustable kit.

Is there anything to consider?

We don't want to tell you anything here with TÜV and approval, it should have gotten around by now that in the German-speaking countries the responsible people can ask for papers like ABE or expert opinions. Shock absorbers from Öhlins or Progressive Suspension are also well covered in this respect. No, it's more about the fact that the mechanic has to think about the suspension movement of the swingarm and the rear wheel when lowering. Suspension struts have travel limiters in the form of rubber buffers. Are they sufficient? Does the tire hit the fender? Tires "grow" at high speeds, i.e. they increase their diameter. Is the distance to the fender and the wires still sufficient? These are issues to think about.
