Garage
Slide forks back down 1/2" and reset the rebound to factory...

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

I took the forks out of my bike, much lighter but rides like shit now.

The pic looks like the front is lower than one inch from stock. That's problem number one.

Correction, problem number one is the swingarm extension on a 599 cc street bike. Just busting your chops.

The bike was lowered 1" all the way around. I raised the front back up 1/2" . Turned the rebound screw back out 2 turns.

The ZX6 was extended for looks, Yes it is only a 6. but it still looks 100% better.... My zx10 is also back 9". There is a picture of my 10. in the WTB threads

I'll never understand why so many think extended swingarms look good.
