Adjust ride height 1100 -88

Hi!

I like to rise the rear on my GSXR1100 -88 but Im not sure how to do it.

I found something I think/hope is the way to go, please look at the picture and se if I am right,
I guess you can move the bolt for the swingarm to rise or lower?

Thanks
michael

No. The swingarm link bolt goes thru needle bearings in the link's cylindrical insert's upper larger hole. Rotating the insert creates interference and would lower lower the rear anyways. You need an adjustable rideheight shock, like an Ohlins.

There's a lad on Facebook who has fabricated a replacement swingarm link that will provide you with the additional ride height you're in search of mate. Drop me a line and I'll fill you in.

Cheers.
