Ok guys got the dogbones on @ a 2" drop and a Dunlop Elite 3 Installed , it is possible.
With just the tire installed the bike sat up high more level , now with the 2 inch drop it lays back again and handels so much better rolls onto the turns easier. there was some grinding done just to the tail end of the sub frame for clearence and the lower belt guard trimming for the tire .
You still retain all travel in the shock with just the links so the ride is still smooth , if you want to ride tandom most likely would need to stiffen the spring a little.

Clar, Did you have to grind down the subframe anymore? In the pic with the subframe, it doesnt appear that you shaved anything and looks to be good clearance. Did you happen to take a pic of what you shaved like sanderclause did?

By the way it looks awesome.. 8)

I took the fender off today thinking I would half to grind more but it was ok , I sat on the bike and bounced it with the fender off to ensure it wouls not rub, the only part I did grind was the very end of the frame were it is only single wall not double walled like the rest maby 2 1/2 or 3 iches just at the end.
Not only do I like the way it looks sitting low but it rides so much better now with the front rake.

Looks really good. It's amazing how much better the Raven looks when you get rid of
those silly wings from the tank. Nice work!
