Dog bones are the and cheapest method, but can be trouble. The with the dog bone is that it reduce the suspension travel, it shoves the tire up higher, to the fender. So if you bottom out, it can

If you do it hard and at speed, it can lock up and up your day.

Anyway, on the Lowering. I don’t to spend too much money now on suspension on my TE 250 at the moment. Is there wrong with bringing the forks up a bit so that the front end lower and then compressing the a bit on the rear so that sits too. I’m not an expert and just want my feet to the ground a little better sacrificing the saddle foam.

When I get used to the bike, I can think about customizing the Is there anything wrong doing the quick fix. thanks

on your suspension — wrong with raising the up a bit, but not too much. After raised the forks, make you test with a couple of big hits to the front suspension to sure you don’t bottom out the fender (crash hazard).

you definitely don’t want to the rear spring, you want a spring so the suspension will sag Compressing the spring with preload will probably negative effects. Springs are and easy to change.

Shaving the is still a very good way to go, and a upholstery shop can replace the with something a bit more to liking, so you don’t sacrifice any where it counts.

Matter of terminology “decreasing of the rear will allow it to sag when weighted- it will more (changes resting of the spring) resulting in the bike lower. While the suspension and chassis tuning will be off- it is “OK” to have bike’s sag set so that it sits a lower. As long as you know you are off the chassis and suspension and are choosing to that up for a better height for you.

Obviously some of this on your skills if this is Once you start pushing the you may notice some poor or excessive bottoming- you’ll to make adjustments as needed- need to add a little preload Your dampening settings be way off- might benefit more compression- and less Play with it… Again- if its not in conditions or speed you can probably get with doing this…

Now you a “chopper” though, so you’ll to decrease rake by raising the tubes in your triple this will also your bike a little as Again you’ll be giving up clearance so as stated previously the bottoming at high speed

Once you get used to this you can raise it back up when you more confidence. Or if you are going to more aggressively but really like the bike lower- get it lowered internally. My buddy a 08TE510 Chopper (I gave him by decreasing preload, cause he swing his leg over the bike- but as he to get better and started bottoming and the bike in corners he set up his sag to spec.

Took him about a year.
