It is a performance and handling issue with my shorter ZX6R forks so a seat is not the solution. My rear is 6mm lower than the front and I want it equal or preferably higher
In any case on a stock Versys the Speedy link drops the rear further than the front can be lowered thereby affecting the trail. Trail is probably the most important factor in frame design and I question if having the rear 20-25mm lower than the front is the optimal solution for lowering. On a stock Versys a link equal to the front drop amount is best for handling
Before the flaming starts and "I found it better" or "I found no difference" replies start flowing, think about the engineering principles involved first before confessing that your butt is not sensitive enough to tell the difference.
Having said that both ends should be lowered equally, a discerning rider would like the Versys with a higher rear to quicken turn in and reduce understeer. Most would not notice
I have a custom spring to suit my weight and riding style, and not in a rush to buy another
Already asked Motorwerk and the answer is no. I could make my own and that is the last choice
Only if that R-1 shock was length adjustable!
