Note that the Keintech mid pipe is for an oversized header...it is not stepped down for the stock head pipe.

That's my combo for sale . I highly recommend the FMf oversized header.


I am way to destructive externally on my dr650 and did not want to smash my gixxer setup.

Rear Suspension Set Up ?

I think I've gotten too many terms in my mind, so help me out.

Bike on a stand (no load on the suspension, tires off the ground) has X distance between two points (bolt near the seat to axle) = 21.5"
Bike off the stand with no rider has Y, distance between same two points = 19.75"
Bike with rider seated has Z distance, distance between same two points = 18.25"

So, what term do you use for each:
X to Y
Y to Z
X to Z

What do you think is a reasonable number for each distance?

What is the point of preload on the rear suspension, to change ride height, or something else?
