    Has anyone put a Slammer Kit by Burly on a Nightster? I am getting ready to put one on my wifes 2009 bike. She's 5'0", I don't think she'll be hitting the tight curves right away. She's still learning.

    If she is riding solo have you considered shorter rear shocks

    The kit does come with shorter shocks. 10.5" I believe.

    Put one on my wife's 07 1200L.

    shocks are 10.5".
    Front springs will lower the bike 1.5-2.5". The ride is definitely stiffer, but she can ride confidently now. Wish I would have measured it before it was put on.

    It's been said that you can't lower the bike any further than it already is.

    As Tsp45acp said lower the rear shocks to 10.5" (I used Progressive) and fork springs 1.5" (also Progressive) works fine on my XL1200R. My understanding is the Nightster is already pretty low...just don't know the "delta" with the Burley kit, but the setup is probably similar within an inch or so.
