tail riser

Anyone use a tail riser on their 919? I was thinking it might be a nice change for a taller rider, and might give the same handling advantage of lowering the front clamps a little, as I have heard talk of before on here.

I am wondering what the performance changes might be...

Easy enough, just get an after market shock with adjustable ride hieght. IE, Penske, Ohlins, WB, Fox, etc. Yes it has a similar effect to raising the forks in the triples.

there is an expensive part available on ebay...details are over at fireblades in the 9'r section

i haven't checked w/ S. to see how he made out w/ the fab'd unit...

still, it's pi$$in the wind for the 919...pretty much nothin is gonna help the bike more than rider skill, all else is just makin ya feel better about tunin this little nuance or that...though, i would like to try a fork brace when all is said and done...just for grins
