How to determine if 640e is lowered?

Hello All,

I am new to KTM ownership, just purchased a 1999 KTM 640e. I need to know how to determine if the bike was lowered or not? I ask because the PO states it was but forgot how he checked. In any case, any help would be appreciated on how to determine this.

Thank you

To hazzard a guess 3 times
THe springs in the front forks are shorter than stock length.
I think there can be linkage parts in the rear swing arm that are shorter than stock or are slightly configured differently to lower the rear.
Smaller that stock rear spring
