Cool I want to lower my bike, need lower links?

Has anyone tried lowering their 300? I can't find anything online.
I only found this lower link on eBay, what you guys think?

Seen that a guy used roaring toyz links and they fit perfect, I believe the roaring toyz kit is exactly the same as the kit you posted.

The problem is depending on how much you drop it you will have to change the kickstand out, and the roaring toyz kit does not fit.

I think the bike is already set up so you can just lower it without needing anything extra. I think. Don't take my word for it, 'cause I'm just quoting a supposition made during my boyfriend's initial "What mods can we make to this baby" inspection.

The supension has 5 setting but that's to make the supension soft or hard. It doesn't lower it. I'm just planning on doing a 2-1/2" drop. I'll check out the roaring toy kit.

Oh, for anyone lowering their new 300R, the Roaring Toyz lowering links and blocks from the 250R will fit perfectly, However, the lowered kickstand will not. You will need to cut the stock kick stand and weld the base back on should you decide to lower the bike.

I'm planning on lowering mine either .5" or 1" on the back only. Is it okay to just lower the back with the lowering links?

I'd imagine you would want to lower it all around. Not sure if changing the weight distribution like that would be a good idea. But I've never lowered a bike so what do I know.

Test the lowest preload setting on the shock. It will affect the actual height of the bike with a rider's weight on it.

I have the roaring toyz lowering kit. Lowered 1in in the back and front and comes with a kickstand. I have noticed no downsides to it. It makes a huge difference in comfort.
