If you remove the rear shim, you have to raise the front forks 10mm to get back to your normal turn-in rates. if you don't, the bike will steer very slow and heavy. I think Kawasaki makes spacers that will replace the shim and they are open on one side so you can slip them in easily. The hard part is getting the shim off because you have to almost take the shock off to get the shim off. Good luck.Originally posted by Skelatorr
i found the shim on thetop of teh rear shock,,, and was thinkin about removing it and replacing with a few washers depending on how low i wanted to go
question is ................how much if any, will this affect handling/cornering stability??????
