Re: Compare the 600RR to the 1000RR
Take a quick poll,
How many serious trackday riders / club racers out there have had that sinking feeling when you realize that your rear wheel just left the ground, and you're on the stator cover?
The 929, and 954 have the same clearance issues, and changing the rear ride height made no positive change.
I have tried plates and dog bone + Penske, with no luck. Everyone I know with a 2000-2003 fireblade has the same problems, especially on tracks like Sears Point, where your suspension gets maxed mid corner.
I also have wonderful scrapes all over the right side of the belly pan.
Woodcrafts solved the footpeg scraping, but only serious modification will keep the case covers and body work off the ground. I put a Factory Pro stator cover on to keep the really hard and angular stuff out of the way.
Don't get me started on the Unit Pro Link, there is no such thing as changing 'ride height' with that unit, only swingarm angle... just ask Miguel
