MV noob

Hi all. New member hoping for some advice on buying an MV from the people who have them. Bit of a rush in I'm afraid as trying to find out about a possible purchase!

Hi guys, I'm looking at a Brutal 990R. It's a really clean looking example but the problem I have is with the seat height. I can't find a lowering link listed for it. The adjustable link already fitted (as standard I believe) is adjusted as short as possible. Does that mean it's adjusted down or up?
Thanks

ignoring impacts on handling, I assume the OP could add a spacer to the lower shock mount. whether you can balance this at the front is something else.

Ah, in which case it might be too high for me then. Don't usually have a problem but perhaps it's not meant to be.

You can get another 1/4 to 1/2 inch out of it with lower aspect ratio tires.
