gen 3: set sag now rear of bike is lower

So I just set the sag on my bike. I had replaced the oem spring with a 10.7kg spring from race tech. I have the sag set to 35mm. The bike rides and handles so much better. Now I stand flat footed though. I know having the ass of the bike higher up again will help with turn-in. I was curious if anyone has tried the "jack up kits" before. Kinda like a lowering link but brings the bike up.

rear ride height affects squat on acceleration a d having the rear high steepens the rake angle and trail numbers. you can just stack washers on the top of the shock mount to frame to add height. ive never seen a jack up kit used so i cant say anything on that

Ya, had to go get a spring compressor to get it in but figured there was a reason they recommend it.

Take a stock shock shim (AKA a thick alloy washer that is between the shock mount and frame on lots of zx6rs 06 and up). Just put it between the shock mount and frame. Just one will jack up your bikes rear end and help it turn a lot but will also make the zx10 shake its head even more.
