Definitely worth it - I have already ordered a set in a group buy, only $15 USD for delivery flat rate.

No low speed trees in the basement so no risk for a high speed XR!

suspension questions

what are the differences in the shock from stock to the lengthened ones teknik did for the safari bikes?
what changes to the forks if any happened with the longer shock? (how did they compensate for the changes in the bikes geometry)
what where the reasons for the longer shock?
did any of the American baja racers use a longer shock?

I can't say anything for the safari bikes, maybe Kasa knows?

However, the Baja bikes had the CR500 hybrid which made the shock about an inch taller (which with the lever arm ratio made it quite a bit higher at the back). I read somewhere that Johhny Campbell had special forks with longer fescalised portions to make the front end higher, but the ex Baja race team forks I have are stock length so I am not too sure.

Without riding my bike I can say that it feels very balanced with the higher rear end. The reasons for the longer shock were varied, but the main reason for using the CR500 shock body was for the extra oil capacity for cooling and the high speed adjuster.

Hope this helps a little :)

Does anyone run Conti TKC80's on their 650R?

Does anyone happen to know what sizes I need for front and rear? There's about 4 different ways of measuring tyres and I can't work out what I need!
Thanks

Both bike suspensions topped out Digga to show the different heights.



The reason why Nick changes the length of the shock for is ment to change the steering geometry as well as a few other things.

The yanks Baja bikes shock was longer than stock.

we measured poppys, seanos and my bikes topped out last weekend and poppys measures 40mm higher. I don't know how.

What do you mean you don't know how ?

Where the rear wheels off the ground when you measured them ?

measured from the concrete to underside of rear indicator bracket with the shock topped out. his static and race sag is also 40mm higher then ours.
is it missing a spacer or stopper or something or has it been modified?

Steal subframe from bike A & see if it changes bikes B & C.
