You will need to maintain a good 4-5mm ride height as it is quite soft, it will bottom out on bumps.

For more side bite, try raising the back end of the centre shock, up to 7mm.
Awesome! Thanks Besercoe... I'll give it a shot.

There are three reasons that I know of:

1. Reduce traction rolling
2. Reduce foam peeling/chunking
3. Tuning aid. The more foam, the more grip. Less foam, reduced grip. So if you need more steering, you can increase the size of your front wheel but at risk of 1 and 2 above. I generally use a 2mm split between rear and front diameters as a starting point.

Taken from a 12th setup guide:

tire split is pretty useful for tuning steering characteristics.
Larger split - more rear grip, less turn in.
Closer split - more turn in, free rear end.
2 - 3mm of split should be a pretty common number.

Looks great, i have gotten used to the RHS motor plate, and have a feeling it gives the Rebel its massive grip, however those axle supports look sexy.

Now if they could only make some 1 piece ride height shims that would be perfect, 3m shims get tricky to get in and out quickly.

But where are the revised front arms????????

Why dont they make their own announcements about developments. I have asked this question direct, and never get a straight answer either.

Just had a look at your site, and there does not appear to be a different part number, can you please advise if the lowered front arms are in stock, and the new vs old part numbers?
