Do you have to remove the exhaust to lower the bike? I search long before starting the thread and couldn't find anything. I'm almost sure that I saw somewhere a write up how to remove that lower bolt without removing the pipe. If anybody knows what I'm talking about, please help.
Thanks..

If I recall correctly ("IIRC") yes, you need to remove the pipes. Its no big deal to do that, but please purchase 2 new crush gaskets for the pipes when you re-install them.

You also need a secure lift for the bike, but that goes without saying doesn't it?

Also, it can be a real pain in the a$$ to remove and then re-install the link - it only seems to go up into the frame one way - and it is a bit aggravating trying to do it. Make sure the bearings are well greased when you put it all back together. My bike, being a 2012, does not have the grease fittings on the rear suspension so it is best to get enough grease in the bearings while it is all apart.

What brand lowering kit is everyone using. I am going to buy one soon and was wondering what everyone's opinions were.
