Hi does anyone have a pair of standard length dog bones to suit my 2002 Gen 1 1000 that they would like to sell please?

I've a pair (Powder coated / Black) & can post if Trev can't find his old ones

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Thanks Gaz, will let you know, bike has been lowered and is also a bitch to get on the centre stand,will be nice to see how it rides at standard height.

I've got a spare pair too,just swapped the lowering DB's for the standard.Doesn't look to be a great deal of difference but it makes it loads easier to get up on the main stand.

Well done Gaz66, and sorry Reyno. I just have been so busy, no time to sort them out.
I actually bought a R6 shock from eBay and made my own dog bones. Lowered the bike about 20mm and the centre stand (as Reyno mentioned) was then too long. So I cut 17mm out of the legs of a spare one I bought again from eBay. Sits nicely now. I know some of you will say it will grind easier but I haven't had that happen to me.
I have the TCP side fairing panels that have proved to be excellent. Bought in my colour Reddish Yellow, because to have second hand ones properly sprayed would not be economical.

For those of us without magnifying glasses (damn autosizing strikes again)  :rolleyes
