Barons Lowering Kit Question
I have a question for those of you who have the Barons lowering lit installed on your Custom.
The instruction shows a photo of the new link arm with the two bolt holes marked as 1" and 2". From that photo, it looks like the upper hole is the one to use for the full 2" drop.
However, when you install the new link arm, the actual link arm is flipped over, resulting in the "upper" hole now being the "lower hole". Did anyone else note this problem?
So, my question is, once the new link arm is installed in the bike, which bolt hole are people using for the maximum 2" drop?
I have tried both holes, and there is a very minor difference (less than 1/2") in total drop between the two choices...with the LOWER hole offering me slightly more drop than the upper.
Does this align with other people's findings?
BTW, I have an e-mail into Barons, with no response for a week.
Oh, one other issue, the OEM link arm has a dust seal inside the pivot on both ends whereas the Barons part does not. Has anyone attempted to re and re those seals and install them in the Barons part?
