Given my last changes where 145/65/15 front tire my nose got a little lower or one could say out of joint.

I added more preload to my front shock and placed a 1cm or 3/8" spacer at the top of the front shock and the sub frame is level again.
My next thing will be a shortened torque arm in the rear, the r1100/50GS 1100s w/sport suspension use a 365mm torque arm the regular 1100s is 385mm when one gets the sport setup they use the shorter arm to raise the bike up and give it more ground clearance.
I bought a billet 385mm with cosmetic issues off fleaby and have shortened it to 355mm , haven't installed yet as I have lots of irons in the fire,but fellow inmate and wheel builder Stroker runs one he made adjustable at about that dimension.I'll post outcome.DB
