Hi my main question is has my bike been lowered
It measures 760 mm to the lowest part of the seat when the bike is upright
Read a few articles but ime still unsure
My bike measures 290mm from the floor to the centre of the gear selector bolt
Will you measure yours if it's a standard height and post it on here for me
Will check mine tomorrow when i find a tape measure - is that the gear lever pivot bolt you are measuring to ?
My bike sat low enough to bottom out the rear tyre into the guard on potholes with the stock non adjust saggy 12 yr old shock - sits way higher with the comfort preload model even on zero preload
Check the length of the shock links too - measured bolt centre to bolt centre there is some data on here somewhere for stock and lowering links sizes

Hi yes ive measured to the center bolt on the gear leaver
Mine is 290mm to the gear lever too at the mid preload setting i am running seat height 780mm
Zero preload drops it down to about 270mm
