Lowering Front Forks

 

*******UPDATE…I have since removed my springs completely and I personally believe the ride is much better for me. Also you will probably have to cut down the kick stand. Modify your scooter how you see fit for your purposes *********

Get your t60 torx here.

First thing you need to do is take the front and back battery box covers off.

Then you will be able to see the fork tubes.

Loosen these bolts.

What you want to do is slide the triple tree that holds the forks up about a half of an inch. And then tighten the bolts. That way you have the triple tree holding the forks nice and solid for when you impact the covers of.

Next impact the covers off with a t60 Torx bit. And you will need an impact gun.

After you have the covers loose on both forks now you can loosen the triple tree bolts all the way. Leave the caps on the fork tubes and then slide the wheel out.

Then take your spring out.

**** MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE FORKS UPRIGHT AND STRAIGHT. THEY HAVE FORK OIL IN THE TUBES****

Cut the spring! Wear eye protection!

This is how much I cut off. You do whatever you want.

 

Cut both springs and make sure they are even.

Button it back up and then you are done!

Member Jordan Mendez went one step farther and bent the spring down and grinded it flat to look exactly like OEM. With the intention that the sharp edges may scratch the inside of the fork tube. Probably a good idea if you have the means.
