Lowering 2015 BMW S1000R
on: February 17, 2019, 01:31:57 AM
Iíve read about the various ways of lowering my bike, but I think using lowering links and dropping the front forks will be my best option.  So, my question is, do I need to purchase bar raisers in order to drop my front forks? I intend to drop them at least an inch.  I donít want to run into any problems.  Iíve seen some people do it with or without.  Thanks.

No you don't need bar risers to drop the front end and as long as your lowering the rear the same amount it won't change the ergo's. You will get a little extra slack on the front brake lines but it don't look too bad on jaylude22's bike. He dropped his .75 inch so another .25 inch shouldn't change it much. He also wen't with an adjustable kickstand.
