Default Honda CR85 lowering kits.

Guys- my sister Kim bought my too short nephew a CR85 a few days ago. He rides it well, but the kid is not tall enough for stopping without help. I need to see if there's a dogbone for the rear. I will move the forks up. Who's got a link?

No help on the dogbones (couldn't be that hard to make...) but here's a question for ya:

Who inadvertently locks their wife in the trunk? Every time I've done it, it was on purpose.

Haven't seen any dogbones, but you could, off course, dissassemble the shock and put a spacer inside. You have to make a spacer out of Delrin-type plastic. This lowers the rear end.

Thans you move the forks up as far a s you can, and hopefully, this will lower the entire bike enough to help.
