Took off my shocks to get the Tamarack slam kit off. Mocked up the shocks. Not bad.

Hi guys, today I've seen a Performance Suspension with separated reservoir for XR1200 ... I think that they can fit on VRSCR... And are disponible in 3 different size.. 14" 15" and 16" ...

Just curious. Isn't the idea with the R to have more lean, thus cornering? Why then lower it?

My guess is short legs, and a desire to "flat foot" at stops.

To me it makes as much sense as apehangers on a DX.

I have two sport bikes and I realize that the R isnt a third. Im going for lowered so I can flat foot, while getting a really good set of shocks that will give me the best ride I can get. Has to be better than the stockers, slammed.

I guess the starting point of me ruining the R was the 200mm Metzeler, although when I measured my chicken strips as I removed my back wheel about a month ago, they were only 1/4" wide. Not bad for a lowered 600lb sport bike.

My buddy works for a local motorcycle company and ordered them from Ohlins. They're re-sprung HD 907's and I haven't spun 1' on them yet.

I would like to see the swing-arm at a softer angle. Thats the thing that bothers me the most. But a slammed R would look sweet. I think they have the nicest front ends and smoothest flowing seat/rear set-ups yet.

These shocks leave the spacing between the swing arm and the tank exactly the same as my Tamarack slam kit. I haven't hit once in the two seasons of owning it.
