Onother option is a Kouba lowering link. Also, the forks and shock can be shortened internally to lower the bike a bit.

I'm checking it out as we speak. I'd like 31.5 and I'm at 33.5 and I don't want to rebuild wheels, is there a lower height tire that still has deep tread?

Just ridden the test bike from Rally Raid. Awesome handling on damp leafy roads. Did take it easy as not my bike.
Ordering the pair tomorrow. Bike is like night and day, rode mine when I got home and it is a mod that I'm desperate to make.

Can someone who installed the RR 19/17 please confirm if:
1) ABS works properly
2) Traction control works properly
3) If speedometer is accurate

Many thanks

Traction abs is all good with new abs ring on front, smaller rear sprocket, the speedo accuracy is now only 2 mph fast.
Result.

Now according to dct fan, there are issues with the gearing. Mine unfortunately has the same problem. I was advised by rr to put back on the original sprocket which I will do this weekend. If it doesn't correct it then I'll have to return the wheels. Next sell the bike. I can't live with the 21" anymore.
Did contemplate putting back on the 18" rear and checking it out. But that's a last resort.

My issue was with the programmed 'shift points' with the low wheel set from RR; before I got the modified ABS ring.
RR shipped the ring but I have since swapped back the OE rims for some trips and rides.
I will update how the automatic modes on the DCT behave after the ABS ring is put on.
But as I have posted, even without the ABS ring, the lower riding position and modified ride behavior on the twisties is top notch.
On the DCT, you just need to override the shifts a lot more than my liking.
Being able to swap out wheels and enjoy two different categories of a bike (almost) is worth every penny in my book.

They're bigging it up on Facebook with links to your posts, wonder if they link this one!
