    FS - 30 mm lowering links 2015-18 V1

    I needed to have my 2017 Versys 1000 lowered with the installation of a stiffer Hagon rear shock. I ignored the drop needed so, (with the GREAT help of Ray here), I had lowering plates fabricated in -20, -25 and -30 mm. I decided to go with the -25 mm so I want to sell the -30 mm plates.

    They are made of (unpainted) laser cut 1/4 in. thick stainless steel and they work great!
    I have no picture yet but will post some soon.

    Asking $55 CDN (+ shipping) which is about $40 US (+ shipping).
    Thanks!

    Hi Claude, I hate to see a fellow biker being ignored, so just so you know that you’re not, here is my penny worth. In the U.K. the trusted brand ‘Lust Racing’ sell 30mm lowering kits for about 120 $CDN delivered within U.K. They are fully powder coated with logo etc. My guess is that for a safety critical part, people are less likely to go for someone’s non-branded fabricated versions, and being unpainted might also put off a few people as well.
    I hope you manage to sell your version, but to be honest, and with absolutely no disrespect to your quality-looking kit, I think the market will probably see them more like a token price ‘home made’ item. Just IMHO. Good luck with the sale & cheers.

    No offense taken and I see your points. Did not really thought about this.
    But my links are made of stainless that will never rust (so no paint needed) and are at least as strong as mild steel used by Lust and other compagnies.

    I have been riding on the exact same links (except for a 25 mm drop) since the beginning of the summer with absolutely no problem.

    I am not selling this to make money nor to make a living out ot this but only to recover a small part of the cost of my expenses. Any buyer needing lowering links will get a great quality product for a fraction of the cost.

    Anyway, if they don’t sell, I’ll simply keep them in my spare parts box.

    Thanks for your opinion!

    If I needed some lowering links, I'd have no issue getting yours. Actually be better than just mild steel everyone else uses. :028:
