Lowering Kit

Postby Josef06 » Thu Aug 24, 2017 11:58 am

Hi,
I bought newly a Dr. Big, -95. I like it. I just wonder if there is any lowring kit for it? How can I make a 8-10 cm lower.
Soon I will be a ballerina! I stands just on toes!

Thanks for reply in advance

To drop it 10 cm is a lot maybe you can get smaller rims and have the wheels done that way you don't mess with the handling 19 ins front / 16 ins back

It would look like a pitbike with little wheels. You can get a shorter shock for it or even just source a shorter spring for your own shock if its in decent condition. the wishbone link can also be modded though I don't recommend this unless you are an accomplished welder. I have shortened a couple in the past to raise the bike. You would need to use 2 links to extend it as it would not be best practice to add a piece in to extend it.

I converted a Big to a supermoto with 17 inch wheels many years ago. Definitely not the way to go!
Take the rubber bungs out of the seat to drop it by an inch or so
Maybe you should get a different bike with a lower seat

No idea. It was up for sale in France. Probably owned by a girly or maybe Stevie Wonder.
