Lowering the rear
Hello, I've been poking around in here this forum, but this is my first post.
I'm interested in lowering the rear of my stock 92 Vulcan 750. I looked at buying shorter springs, but first I don't have that kind of money to burn, and second I'd kind of like the challenge of a homemade mod.
I've googled for several hours and come up with something that looks pretty straight forward. I have the steel and the means to make the brackets.
I'm looking for a 2" - 2.5" drop in the rear then an oversized 170/80/15 to help a bit with the gear ratio. Final drop might be about 1.5" and I should fill the fender a little more.
The right side is a no-brainer. I had the idea then found pics to support the idea. I'm stuck as far as the left side and all the pics I see don't detail the left side. Any ideas? The only thing I can think of is a plate from the stock mounting hole on the differential with a spacer to the rear axle under the castle nut. I'm not overly excited about adding a plate under the castle nut though.
