The generic suspension tuning threads I've read for this bike, also advise pushing the forks thru the upper triples. I've read anywhere from 4-10mm. I had them about 6mm.
This bike has the stock rear dogbone. Bike # 1.0 has a slightly shorter one form the PO, raising it a little.
In reality, I dropped the front a little more on this one with this mod, and didn't touch the rear. That relatively raised the rear in relation to lowering the front.
With my level of riding, I think it will make cruising straights much more comfortable, and give my neck a little relief too. It actually doubt I'll really notice any major differences in the overall handling.
If it's adverse, switches back EZ enough too.
Happy Fathers Day
