So the back is lowered ? You no longer have the OEM wishbone ? Are the fork flush with the top triple ?


When lowering/raising the back of a ninja 250 (for my girl) I supported the back with a 2x4 beam in the garage ceiling .

Ask the previous owner for the stock linkages.
Some aftermarket ones are adjustable to a certain extent.
If the forks are slid up mush in the triple trees, put them back to flush.

Also, some people adjust the preload (NOT a good idea btw), which will also raise or lower it some,
but it affects the 'sag'.
I'll stop there

Stock rear linkage should look like this


A lowering link usually looks like this


Or this



A stock linkage can be purchased cheap on Ebay.

Or from someone on the site who replaced theirs with the Yosh link. Like me.

But of course Tigerblade would be my first choice.

They are on sale at Yoshimura's web site . I picked one up for 202 . That's 200+ off original price :
