Does anyone know who or where i can get a tail riser / jack up kit for my 2001 R1, i got lengthend dog bones for my ace from bikefarm mv, (they dont make them for the 2001 R1) and they lifted the rear end improving handling dramatically and i want to do the same on my R1 - also as im a tall SOB!

Hi, Thanks for the response but the Account for domain engineeredracingproducts.com has been suspended, any other ideas?

dont know really, you could find someone to custom fab one. price though.
i raised the forks 7mm and only ride 190/55 or 190/60 tires.
oops, forgot that you can go with an after market shock with ride height adjustment.

The 02/03 dogbone is a little bit longer than the 01 and will raise the back end about 1/2 inch.

I guess if it only raises the rear end half an inch its not going to stiffen the rear shock any?
Has anyone replaced the stock spring for a stiffer one or am i still looking at an Ohlins expense?

Hi it is still possible to buy a shorter rear tie bar for the 2001 R1 it raises the rear ride height by almost 25mm they can be bought from Maxton suspension specialist here in the Uk and also beleive Demon tweeks offer a similar item made by third party company.
Uk cost is about £80 Approx $150 + shipping
just do a search for maxton suspension should get you a link to there web site

im in the process of changing the rear shock for a shorter item (long story) but i need to raise the rear end a tad via the liks at the bottom to compensate.
basically i need a shorter link arm for my 5pw.
i found a r6 item but it was the same length, is the earlier r1 link arm shorter?
