Hi,i have a02 750,I was wondering if i should raise the rear, I like ht efeel of a bike that sits a little higher in the back. What size spacers should I use and wheree can I get them? how much doi i raise it? and how hard is it to get the rear shock? what do i have to take off? Thanks
What is hte most you would go? I don't feel like doing it over (unless of course it handles like crap. Do i have re set my sag? if so will it get more or less sag by raising it? I just put them on the shock under where it bolts to teh swingarm? what will be the easiest way to get a torque wrench onit? thanks
I just did mine today I still need to do fork seals and oil etc tomorrow. But I got 3/4 washers from lowes they were gold color and had the right width and fit perfect in there. They were 1.00 ea 2 washers gave me 6.5mm (Or 1/4 inch) of lift. So each washer is 3.25mm thick
Now I hear people talk about 6 mm, now is it 6 mm lift of 6 mm of spacers? becasue from my understanding is that every 1 mm of spacer added the bike goes up 1.8mm? and I read in another spot that you want to meassure eye to eye on the shock. Thanks
Lay it on it's side for what? to get the bolt off or get the shims under there?
I layed it on the side instead of using the jack stands both ways are fine. I just couldnt find one of the legs to my jack stand.... So I just layed it sideways and it came off quick, unbolt the lower bolt take it off and pull the shock as if your going to remove it. Slip the washers in tighten and your all set
