    Puts your body mass lower on the the bike instead of higher up unless I kept the Hight and lowered the tail section of the sub frame but the I would run out of room for the suspension

    Do you control your bike through your bum or through the foot pegs and bars ?

    you dont want your body mass low ,that makes taking curves more difficult

    pull the shock out, remove the spring and put the shock back in. that'll tell you how high it needs to be for clearance, and what hits where. i can't imagine it has that much wheel travel that the tail needs to be that high.

    I just figured out what Hyosung translates too: High you sing. Cause the ball smashing is for real on that bike.
