x power springs are still available from ptp but they dont lower it a great deal, just make sure you get 1.6/1.8 springs not 2.5/ diesel springs

Hi m8, save ur pennies and replace the springs and shocks. Standard units are not that good to start with. Last 180 I had was lowered with the Koni kit but at -30mm I could not even pull on the drive without hitting the sump if I had more than 15mph on the clock.
I will b installing a spax kit over Xmas which will allow me to dial in the height I want but then of course u gotta reset the cambers!

Cheap option fit the moto build -20mm springs but If u go lower then be ready for some dents in the exhaust.

Paul

Never had any probs with the Motobuild (Koni Springs) 30mm.

Theres quite a few off here who purchased them and all without bother apart from slight scrubbing.

Ummm maybe when they are fresh / new but get a few miles on them and the ride is a little rough as the damping goes off. Try sitting in the back whilst being driven on a good old back road or get a ride in one with some quality shocks on and u will know what I mean.
But I am a fussy ****** when it comes to setting up cars and bike lol!
