Or lower the rear end by fitting an 08/09 450/530 EXC swingarm
I have pushed forks through by about 30mm, you can go as far as the parallel part on the forks allows
Fit a electric start ;-)? will pushing the forks through not quicken up the steering ? and make the bike less stabe in a straght line ?
also the other issue did a hare and hound last monday and was going good untill i came off the bike. once the bike is on it's side it is a pain to start lost 20min on my first lap trying to kick the bike is there any mod to pervent this ?
breather pipes have been moved up high and the carb has been stripped and cleaned
so if i drop the front by 25mm. i take it there is nothing i can do to the rear other than change the swingarm ?Not if you keep it all in balance by lowering the rear.... my 06 450 is lowered by about 25mm and never shakes it's head
The spacers go on the damper rod to limit the fully extended length of the shock/fork.I'm in the process of having my 450 lowered, its done by putting spacers into the rear shock and forks...although I can't for the life of me think how putting spacers in will lower anything, unless its replacing bigger spacers with smaller spacers.
Anyhow, the upside is that the shop reckons they can get almost 2" off the height by doing this.
