I do not like changing suspension hight as that affect the factory geometry. But you need to do what works for a I understand. were the forks pulled up in the triple trees on the front end to match the lowering link in the rear end.
the best thing to do is lower the suspension internally. race tech does a good job check out this web site
OK, maybe i'll try a pair of my wifes high heels.
i bought the bike on ebay and never tried riding one before that. so i guess i'm getting what i deserved.....another lesson learned. they did raise the forks 1/2" in the triple trees which i doubt will change the steering very much. if i could get the bike down another 2" everything would be fine. it's a little awkward now, but it could be a lot worse. if you think of anything else, please let me know. thanks for advice.
that would be a funny site see a guy wearing high heels to be able to stand flat footed with his bike under him.
raising the forks a 1/2 an inch is a big change in the geometry of the bike.
those are the things we recommend to our customers who have a hight challenges going on
the XR 650 it tall I am 6'3" and they fit me ok any higher would make it tough for me to ride
i think a few more oil changes will get the oil out it will take some time to get the car oil out from between the clutch plates.
how much free play is in the clutch lever?
glad to help
