Rear Shock????????????

Does our bike have a rear shock spacer where it attaches to the frame? Like the 03/04 ZX6R.

Next question. I'm short, and obviously lazy. I don't want to lower the bike too much, but I figure taking out the washer will help. If I measure from a fixed point on the subframe to the ground with the washer in. Then do the same measurement with it out. Then measure from a fixed point in front of the frame to ground. Then pull my forks up until I get the same difference in height as removing the washer did in the rear. That should give near the same geometry right?

In the shadetree/coonass schoolin it will. Actually try removing the 3mm shim and leaving the frontend alone until ya ride it! then if your so inclined to raise the tubes have at it.

I could do that. I was planing to drop the front before my pulling the washer idea. Wanted to taste a little quicker steering. But your method may save me some work BD.

I think BNinja did something w/ the rear shock spacer. There was a reference to the geometry change 3mm rear == 4.5mm front. So if you remove the 3mm rear shock spacer, sounds like raising the forks 4.5mm in the clamps would bring you back to stock geometry.

I removed my spacer as well but the Penske is 4.5mm longer eye~eye than the stocker so the end result is still +1.5mm
