Paul, it was Wheeliebin who flipped the rear suspension 'rocker'. I think it raised the rear by about 2", he had fork extensions made to lift the front a similar amount - then the side stand extended.....Look for links on the transalp section
I think it was 'Recycler' who did the transformation you are looking to achieve by, as BT said, turning the bottom rear shock linkage upside down gaining about 2" height.
This would then present a problem with the front end and rear being out of balance as far as factory set up
There are fork extenders that screw into the top of each fork leg that you can buy and these will raise the bike so it's more in balance at the front and rear
This then makes one more problem - the side stand will be too short and possibly the main stand as well
Increasing preload on the front or rear will increase the ride height and give a firmer ride. If you increase it too much you will lose some of the bikes comfort and handling will deteriorate a bit. Also you will see increase tyre wear especially on the rear
Hopr this helps
Thanks PhilPaul, it was Wheeliebin who flipped the rear suspension 'rocker'. I think it rtaised the rear by about 2", he had fork extensions made to lifit the front a similar amount - thena the side stand extended.....
Dunno about the 700, the 650 wwill accept spacers above the fork springs to increase the front preload/height.
