2010 SIDI sv6 S1 ute in phantom
Hey all,

Just wondering if anybody with a dirt bike has lowered their ute and how low did they go? are you hitting the bumpstops every time you hit a bump in the road?

ive got a stock sv6 but am going to put the GTS 20" wheels on it.

any help would be great

They look like the equivalent of SSL - but lowered springs have a higher spring rate which helps when you have to carry stuff. You do lose some tray weight but not heaps. I wouldn't try and test the specified load limit too much though. These utes really aren't built to carry heaps, even at stock height.
