Hi Steve
Just the 2 outside links are req'd. I did mine on the centre stand with the help of a floor jack to lift the rear wheel to help align the bolt holes when reinstalling the new longer links. Very easy job. Torque spec on the bolts is 44ft/lbs i think ( from memory )
The differance in seat height is dramatic!!

Words of caution for all who would lower the C-14 with ZX-14 links. YOU WILL HAVE TO SHORTEN YOUR SIDESTAND (MINOR JOB) & your centre stand(not so minor job)after you lower . You need to be or know a good welder!
Just thought you should know before you start.

I have a set of ZX14 dogbone links and a shortened side stand available. I had lowered mine, then ordered the new Lo-Gel seat from Kawasaki. TOugh lesson as I had to get a new side stand $65.00 buck, ouch. Send me an email if interested and I'll send some photos. I cant figure out how to add them to this post.

Gel seat

Hi,

I haven't yet bought my GTR1400, but will test riding one this saturday.

I'm interested know how you're getting on with the Gel seat. If it works ok, this sounds a far better option to me.

Kurt at Muzzys told me you need additional product to lower the front at the same time. It won't be available for another two weeks

I also have a short inseam so I've been looking at lowering links or dogbones. Here's a link to some lowering links I found online:

http://www.muzzys.com/concours14/con...nks/index.html

It's also super important to get the bikes sag right!!! Which means that when one lowers the back one should also lower the front. But these things have to be kept to a reasonable amount. Also Corbin makes a super nice Connie seat. Mr. Harry Eddy at Heli-Modified in Cornish, ME, was showing me his Connie this morning and he has the Corbin seat and he said it lowered the seat height enough to help with us inseam impaired Connie owners. I would think a lower, more comfortable seat combined with a REASONABLY lowering adjustment would be just the ticket!

Received this email this morning from Curt at Muzzy's:

The links are 6.5" which lowers the ZG1400 as much as you can without bottoming out the rear tire

Can you tell me the length of your C-14 lowering links or dogbones?

I believe the stock length is 6.25"? Links around 6.5" would be just the ticket. Al

Hello all, anyone know what the actual seat height is on a 08 ZX6R? Thinking about ordering a custom seat from Saddlemen with an overal seat heigh of 1" but not sure if this would lower the manufacturer seat height of 32.2. Any help would be appreciated.

can say what a bike confidence level went up 100 points in one ride.now i know it would be nice to be able to drop both ends equal .But until they make us some parts this will do just fine.if your havin probs with hieght try the zx14 stock links you will be glad you did!
I would like to know if anyone has lowered the GTR 1400 with the Soupy lowering kit and modified the center stand to refit it on the bike?

Has anyone used the Soupy lowering kit and refit the center stand by modifying and shorting the original center stand?
