I thought it handled better to but I also hit pegs and even the pipes more than twice. But also still have a 210.
Yup, when i first lowered mine with the PCS Links, stock 210 and stock exhaust, I scraped my exhaust on a fairly steep right turn. Still have the same setup with the cobra swepts and hit that same spot and never have scraped exhaust again. There is another thread floating around here with this same exact discusssion and a couple of guys put the metzler 240 with pcs links lowered 2 inches and have scraped the inside of the fender with the tire. No one with the Avon has ever said they scraped the tire with the PCS links lowered all the way that I am aware of. I believe the avon is like a .5" smaller in height then the metz and that could make all the difference in the world. Decided long ago I will go with the smaller AVON 240 so I can leave my links all the way down, Just waiting for this stocker to wear out. When you first lower the bike you will notice a difference in handling, Seems to be much touchier, falls into the turns much easier. You get used to it real fast.
