Kodlin USA Extends Lowering Kit Program

More news from Kodlin USA about the company's award-winning lowering kit for 2018 and up single shock M-8 Softails such as the FLHC/FLHCS Heritage Classic, FXBR/FXBRS Breakout, FLFB/FLFBS Fat Boy models, FLSB Sport Glides, FXBS/FXFB Fat Bob, FLDE Deluxe and FXDR 114.

The kit lowers the bike by up to 40 mm and does not require shortening of the threaded rod or sending in of the suspension for final assembly. The company is reporting excellent initial sales for the kit, but though it is a genuinely reversible 'plug and play' install that includes pre-installed bearings, the company says some dealers are nonetheless reporting issues working on the shock to get to the bolt to install the Kodlin part.

In additional news, a new version of the kit is now also available for M-8 Softails such as the Street Bob, Slim, Standard etc. that is without the pre-load adjuster knob.
