Rebar1968 ok thanks it was just a thought I had seeing how it will be wasted space after altering it for the 900 seat.. most likely so the s40 shocks thanks for all the info

no one makes a lowering kit for a vn750 that I know of. Slimvulcanrider made one for himself. I'll see if I can find pics

OleDirtyDoc Suzuki savage or s40 boulevard shocks lower it about 3" and bolt on.I move the forks up in the trees to bring the rake back and had to relocate the rectifier as the swing arm was hitting it after lowering

moving rear shock

hello just wondering I have been doing some reading , I see you can make a kit to lower the rear or swap out the shocks, has any one just moved the top mounting hole ?? I was looking at maybe just using the first or second back rest hole as I will no longer be using the back rest
