Hi Johncroz62, the people I used are Krooztune with a Z not S, easily found on the web. David is the Owner / Doer who did mine so I can't advise how he removed the shock assy. I think that he did it all from below without even removing the seat, but he has the lifting bike stand of course so that must make it easier. The lowering on my bike uses the same springs and shocks so only the mechanical "dogbone" linkage is changed (by about 15mm) on the rear, and spacers plus raising the fwd struts in the triple clamps by 10mm. This means that the (somewhat soft) suspension characteristics are very closely maintained but the whole bike sits 40mm lower. Earlier in the thread I give some of the numbers that are important to me, such as lean angle and ground clearances etc.
