Lowering kit on new 2020 models.
on: August 23, 2020, 02:03:17 PM
Hi all, Iím looking at purchasing a new versys 1000gt and wondered with all the new sensors and technology on the new suspension if its still possible to fit a Lust lowering kit. I have one fitted on my 2016 versys and couldnít be without it now, any knowledge or advice would be be much appreciated, thanks.

I've done 5,500  miles so far with the 30mm kit fitted and everything seems OK.

With the lowering kit installed, can you still use the center stand?

It's meant to come with an attachment to change to side stand angle. My dealer didn't fit it think because the V3 is different to V2 in this area. My bike was standing to upright. There is a US company that makes adjustable side stands which I ordered. Again it was a :V2 stand that was different, with perseverance they were able to deliver an alternative which I am happy with.

The other option is to trim your current stand and probably weld the rest back on a slightly different angle.

I have the Lust lowering kit it and some say it is still possible to get the bike onto the centre stand, but you have to be strong/weighty to get that initial lift. As I am neither, I can't! When I park up in my garage I simply drive the rear wheel only onto a 3cm thick plank of wood, thus leaving it slightly raised. It's then a piece of cake to lift it onto the centre stand for chain maintenance etc.
When out and about travelling, it's side stand only parking. I use the original unmodified side stand and it works ok for me. I just have to be more careful not to park with any upward road camber on the left side.

I have a lowering kit on my 2015.
No way can I get the bike on the centerstand!! Maybe cause I am too old.
I had a guy trim some off the centerstand and I can now get the bike up on the centerstand by myself. I still need to trim a little more cause I would like to have less effort yet. Kinda like it was when it was stock before the lowering kit.
So I need a favor from someone. I need to know the measurement of clearance between the bottom of the rear tire and the floor. This of course must be done on stock bike with no lowering kit.
