Had to shoot my bike....

Had to update the software on the Scheibner machine so I shot the geometry on my bike again to verify numbers. Thought you guys might like to see....

Care to share you numbers like ride height and swing arm angle?

Unfortunately it doesn't quite work that way, lemme elaborate. Geometry is based off a number of measurements. Rake angle, fork length, tire diameter front and rear, triple tree offset, shock length, rear axle position. In order for my #s to work on your bike you would have to have EVERYTHING exactly the same as mine. So you would have to have Pirellis with a 190/55 on the back, extend your forks internally 10 mm, and make sure you have the rear axle position perfectly. And to add too it you have to take into account your riding style and pace!

But I will say when I finished I settled on 12.3 degrees of downslope on the swingarm angle, 100.2 mm of trail and 23.9 degree rake.

It help setup geometry. Works exactly like the computrac except this is easier to replicate numbers.

Yes you are right, I was just wondering what numbers they came up with. In 1999 we had Computrac set up a GSXR 600 race bike and check the frame for true. Before the bike was even raced or crashed, the frame had to be straightened. You will always find the optimum swing arm angle between 11 and 12.5 degrees. The front end can vary quit a bit from bike to bike.

Gotcha. We usually set 1000s between 12 and 13 degrees of swingarm angle and 600s between 13 and 14 degrees.
