r6 suspension question

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by ridgey, Dec 2, 2006.

  1. Hi
    I have a 2006 r6. I am pretty short, and am on tippy-toes when stationary. With all the different suspension adjustments on my bike, is there anything that will make the seat height lower? even just a few mm would help. Dont think i want to modify it though, so if the stock suspension does not offer this, i guess i will just have to get used to it.

  2. I dunno if there's a hieght adjustment on the factory rear shock, but if there isn't, it should be easy to rais or lower it with a set of adjustable dog bones.

    I assmume the R6 runs a dog bone setup on the rear swingarm..

    well, just guessing actually, I really have no idea :p

    That's one easy way to change the height though, just change the geometry of the swing arm linkages. the adjustable dog bones would be real easy to fit.

  3. i think if you lower it, its going to change the ride.
    best bet would be to shave the seat. You can get it done and get an inch off it... might be a little firmer but it is asports bike
