I don't know if it is lowered or not but holy crap that exhaust is ground down lol. Is that from street riding or track? Maybe try to get your body off the bike more so you can give it a little less lean angle.

You’ll have to verify in a workshop manual but I’d say yes, it’s been lowered. If you’re tall enough, raise the rear, then you can raise the front and keep the same geometry and gain ground clearance.

You probably need to have the suspension set up for you. Not just add more preload to the shock. If you are 190lbs you are at the top of the spectrum as far OEM stuff goes.

You need someone to check the Static and Dynamic sag of the motorcycle. Once you see where those figures fall you can determine if it requires spring replacement.

sag(lifted bike vs rider on) is 25mm rear and 50mm front, front springs preloaded at max, , no wonder on braking bike would dive forward. i guess will have to change springs. took me 5 years to do it

Anybody fitted stock 848/1098 rear shock on 1100 evo, should fit with evo spring? also R1 up to 2014 stock shock should fit and only 60 on ebay $, do you thimk it will work? ohlins option is du737 at 540 but reviews are not that great

race tech recommend TWICE stiffer spring! but online everybody say bike should have stiff stock springs to accommodate 2 riders.

Stock setup is usually a progressive setup. I’m not sure what it is on your particular bike but that’s how manufacturers get away with it. The farther you push the bike in it’s stroke, the stiffer the rate gets.

Did new springs and valves in forks, hard to say im happy because now under accel bike lifts front wheel little bit and very easy to get tank slapper. also at straightaways on trackday front end doesnt feel planted, never wanted steering damper so bad at 100mph)))). much better on braking tho,

looks like ill have to find budget solution for rear shock to be able to adjust compression.

r1 very similar. just bottom eyelet is wider. anybody know how to take this bushing apart????

also shock is going to be upside down with stiffer spring i guess.


looks like its not possible to make r1 shock more narrow at the end because it has bearings not bushings at both ends( will try 848/1098/1198 shock
