Behold the magic of the Search function oke J/kAldebaran said:will the bt014 rub against the front fender? btw if i raise the rear how should i go abt it? just adjust the preload?and raise the rear by how much? thanks alot
I think...THINK...that a 70 profile over a 60 profile is about 10-12mm TOTAL increase in size. This means that the height of the bike will increase roughly 5-6mm (only half of the increase in size lies below the axle). To raise the rear, you just need to shim up the frame where the rear shock bolts to it (unscrew the nut, raise up the bike under the freme not the swingarm, put on a shim, lower the bike back onto the shock, re-tighten, viola!)BRAVO said:Raise the rear, by how much?
And if i'm using a 70 profile tyre, which increases the height by 12mm, then drop the yoke by 10mm, how have i decreased the ground clearance? And there's noway the forks will bottom out by dropping the yoke 10mm. And most importantly its a good idea to raise the back if your racing on a track regularly but for short bastards like me its no good for using on the road
