If you are wanting to go 2 inches lower, then I suggest doing the good 'ol "Flip-n-grind". It'll give you about a couple inches, and best of all, it's free!

As for bars, get ones that are comfortable. Some issues you may encounter are your view of the tach or the speedo may be blocked, depending on the rise and pullback of the bars. The greater the pullback, the more likely your speedo will be blocked, the less pullback, it's likely your tach will be blocked. These factors are also dependent on your height.

I would get the adjustables from Ram(don't know the full name just search adjustable lowering links).

Hey,

Sorry to post off your topic, but I'm contemplating a a left over '09 Warrior and I'm wondering what you ended up paying for yours. I'm not sure what to offer. Dealer is asking $7999 plus applicable fees. Feel free to PM if you prefer.

I just got a new '09 for 10,750 two weeks ago. There are cheaper ones out there but this was the only one close. $7999 new? That's a steal. Guys, I'm a newb. How do I create a new topic/questions to the forum? I can't figure it out after reading FAQ's etc. It seems I can only comment on existing topics. Any help would be appreciated. I'm going to ride my Warrior to work for the first time today. We'll see what the haters say

Go into the forum section and click the link that pertains to your topic. Once you are there you should see a new thread button at the top of the page.

I have the PCS kit with their 1200 lb variable rate spring and it seems to work well but is not adjustable
