I also generally understand what you are asking, however I have never measured that accurately the swing arm angle. I am a 220lb rider and with the stock front suspension I do not have an issue bottoming out. I used zip ties to measure and make sure of this. The rear suspension the rear spring was very weak and problematic. So I changed the spring for my weight. I have the stock 10mm shim in place and I have added 4mm on top of that. I did that before the spring change and I have left it alone. All I did was reset the sag front and rear, then got the rest of my settings dialed in. For me street riding and some track day riding, this is more than adequate, and handles excellent as hard as I can push it.
Unless Scout says dont do it. Then, really, just do it.
I know its blistering fast but you cant outrun ugly.
