    lower spacer install '99 F650

    Anyone seen instructions of how to install the lowering kit spacers into the rear shock for a '99 F650 Funduro?

    I would appreciate a link if you have.

    http://f650.com/faq/FAQs/LoweringKitFAQ.htm There is a link to the instructions within this link. I have seen reference to people using a LOT of tie wraps to compress the spring to install the spacer if you do not have a spring compressor.

    Took the shock down to local shop and for 30bucks had the spacers installed. Saved myself the time to figure out a Jerry rig that would have likely ended in a few curse words

    Wheel no longer bottoms out on the fender, not quite as nice a shock as the ohlins that was on it
