None unless they are massive speed bumps.

Check out my ride thread and see how low mine sits. The VY kit is much bulkier, as are the sideskirts... so it sits really low. I have ultralows in the front and superlows in the rear. I have to be VERY careful with dips and driveways, but bumps are ok.

Just be careful and you will get away with it easy man.

If your car is of legal height you should have no problems with speed humps. Be very careful going into/out of driveway crossovers as the front will scrape occasionally. Going slowly at an angle seems to work in most cases.

i got a vn group A lower kit and king superlow springs and 18's mags
i have no problems with speed bumps as long as i am sensible

but do have probles in car parks where there is a raised gutter (in the actual parking space) because my f/bar cant fit over it so i have to park with my r/bar sticking out or move to another spot:bang:
