    Has anyone lowered a 1200L Sportster and if so what is best. Shorter shocks, the lowerering kits available or possibly thinner seat. It's a 2007. Thanks in advance.

    Hobbit does have a point, I know that I have a slight bit of rubbing of the belt drive to the cast aluminum cover on the right side of my sporty...a bit of rubbing wear...almost 1/16" deep so he know what he is talking about. Fortunately, I eh..."dressed" the area another 1/16" with a file and followed up with fine crocus cloth to get it smooth so not tear or rub on toothed rubber belt anymore.:s
