How 'bout this?
I'm short, so I want my bike as low as possible.......However, I also ride the mountain twisties such as the "Dragon" a lot. So I want to minimize dragging bottom while in the sharp turns....
So how does this combination sound?
.....11" rear progressive 412 shocks, lowers bike an inch or more and brings fender closer to tire....which looks better.
.....170/80-15 Rear tires, raises the bike back up some, lowers Rpms, and maybe puts more meat on the ground.
.....110/90-19 Front tires....better handling and makes speedometer closer to accuate.
......????possibly lowering front forks with progressive springs, also better handling.
So Tires raise the bike and shocks and springs lower it.....
What would be the NET lowering (or raising )of the bike...
Could I do the REAR shocks and tire first.....then the front later??
