Raising the rear height

Recommended Posts

I would like to know if there is a company or someone who makes shorter dog bones to raise the rear height.

Hope someone knows more.

I don't know of anybody that makes shorter links. Very little application. They can be custom made, not too hard. Talk to a local machinist. Why do you wan to raise the rear? And what about the affect on steering geometry and spring rate??

Yes i am a long dude, 6,4 Foot.

My weight is 180 pounds.

The spring tension is already on it highest, but when i sit on it, the rear lowers to much.

Perhaps a stiffer spring is the best solution.

Check static sag (about 1 inch) and race sag (about 4 inch) and determice your spring needs from there. If static is less than 3/4 and race is still 4 or more, you need a stronger spring. What bike (E or S) and what spring do you have now? I would not change suspension links to compensate for spring rate. You do that the other way around.
