Hi All,

I own a K4 R1 which is the perfect height for me, I recently bought a GSXR-600 K3 for the track as I did want to risk the R1 getting into a stack with no insurance offered on the race tracks here in OZ.

My question: Is there a way to make the rear a liitle higher on the gsxr 600 as I feel like i'm on a bike that's about 1foot too short for me (i'm 6foot). (other than rear shock adjustment)

Any clues ?

if you pull the seat and batt tray, youll see the top mount for the rear shock you can shim that with wasers.. i beleibe guys start with about 4 mm and go up from there. double check in the racer/track day forums

You can use a shock ride height adjusters.
replaces the stock shock upper mount with a CNC machined 6061 T6 aluminum unit. The new unit is 5mm taller than stock at the base and has a longer threaded area to allow for spacers to be added.

check your PM

Go to lowes and buy these gold 3/4 inch washers they are 99 cents each. Buy 2 that will give you 6.5mm of rear lift if you put it under the top shock mount. Youll need to lower the front a hair, youll want 5-7mm of fork silver showing at the top clamp, measure from under the top adjuster cap.
