How much do you need to lower the bike ? Mine is about an inch lower, no parts required though a shorter side stand was made to stop the bike standing too straight.

I thought the 1090 had a ride height adjuster?, so maybe you just need to take it to a local suspension tuner, get the ride height set and the shock setup accordingly

Im not sure what it will do to the geometry of the bike though and how it will affect the handling...

Whats the goal? if its just lower seat height then maybe go for a shorter stand and re-trimmed seat will do the job for less cost/hassle

cheers

Thanks for the replies, I hadn't considered the shorter side stand. I would like to lower it by about 15-20mm. I am nop hero in the bends, so cornering should still be fine. I will double check my suspension adjustment and see what can be done with the seat too.

@ resawkins do you have a picture of your modified stand?

For that amount of reduction I would look at a seat re-trim, with addition of gel but lose some height...and maybe side stand too for ease of getting on/off

it could be even easier than that if you dig the manual out and find out you can lose 20mm off the ride height adjuster without messing up the rest of the settings.....download the workshop manual, its all in there

cheers

You can fit the side stand from the first generation Brutales. It's about 2cm shorter, and you won't have to chop your own one.

The 1090RR is easily lowered using the adjustable link that is on the bike.
Lower the front the same amount.
I lowered my wife's 1090RR 19mm this way and it works well.
