Adjustable Lowering Kits
The PCS Adjustable Lowering kits
In early 2000 Pacific Coast Star was the ORIGINAL company to introduce a multi-position lowering kit, at that time for the Yamaha V Star 1100. Later that same year we improved
on that lowering kit introducing our PCS Easy Adjust system and began making them for for different models of motorcycles. With our New Easy
Adjust System, it was finally possible to easily and quickly adjust between height settings
without removing linkage bolts and in just a couple of minutes.
Since then, as other companies have attempted to compete with our Easy Adjust kit, ours have clearly stood out above the rest with the ability to change quickly and easily for solo riding,
then to loaded riding, and back to solo
with little effort. Be aware, any lowering kit that uses our adjustment method, is simply a cheap counterfeited "knock off" of our kit. All of our Lowering
Kits are proudly made by us in the U.S.A.
Here's are the steps for changing height settings:
The Competition's Lowering Kits
- Remove the nut on the suspension bolt
- Jack rear of the bike up
- Carefully raise or lower the rear of the bike with your jack until you hit the exact point that relieves the pressure off the bolt so you can slide the bolt out.
high or too low and it won't come out.
- Next, move the linkage on the nut side so you can remove the bolt bushing (assuming you got the pressure off correctly, if not re-adjust) so the bolt will be able to clear
the frame member when you remove it
- Move the bolt back and forth to get the bolt bushing to break loose, and slowly work the bushing out one direction, and the bolt the other direction until it's free.
- Jack the bike up or down (depending on what setting you are going to)
- Once again slowly adjust the jack up or down until you get the linkage bolt hole perfectly lined up with the swingarm bolt hole while remembering that if your just a fraction off
the bolt will bind up, and not go in.
- Re-insert the bolt, but not all the way yet,
- Push the bolt sleeve back in from the other side of the bike,
- Re-align that linkage to the swingarm hole,
- While keeping both sides aligned, push bolt the remainder of the way through
- Install nut and tighten
- Lower jack
- Go wash you hands and tell your friends sorry for the wait.

(You may have noticed our kit takes the same number of steps, but steps 6 through 14 are so much fun!)

installation. Our kit does not change the stiffness or the comfort of the ride. Once installed, changing between the settings takes a 17mm wrench and a couple of minutes. Every kit comes
with a Lifetime Warranty and Technical Support for any questions you may have during installation. So when you purchase a Pacific Coast Cruisers lowering kit, you know you are getting...
