I might be too late to do this,,, but is there a way to lower the front about a 1" 1/2 ...?
Nope,,, ill do it right, rather Waite a bit then have a hard ride and wore out tiresSome hack a bit off the springs, others go to a spring kit that will lower and maintain the load carrying ability...
Hacking the end off the spring will destroy the alignment of the spring in the fork tube because the end won't be square.... I'm not sure how significant that is to long term operation but it'll get you the look you want in the short term.....
Looks good too,,, used the fit menu, vl not there. Vs same setup ?Progressive Suspension makes drop in kits. I have a set in my C50.

If I remember correctly they only list a kit for the C90, but they fit no problem with the C50.
They use a PVC spacer at the top of the spring and you cut the lenth of the spacer to determine the amount of drop.
I would think not. I'm thinking the VS had longer front forks. I'm thinking C90 or VL1500 if either of those two are listed.Looks good too,,, used the fit menu, vl not there. Vs same setup ?
Got it now,,,,,how much did yours go down ??I was editing as you were posting, check this link.
