12mm less stroke gave the geometry I was looking for.

I have my legs bent and feet planted on the ground when I sit, and that looks even lower! Probably will be nice to control in the curves and with the weight on the back wheel less prone to lift the front wheel on the straights.

Please let us know what you think after you tried it!
Thanks from tourist

Will do! Seat height at the lowest point is 89cm, and my heels just touches the ground, no more no less, but Im not that tall either at 5'8".

Everything is ready to be put back in its place, fresh swingarm bearings and the rear shock with shortened stroke. I think this is the sole reason its a bit warm and thin ice Should have pics this weekend as I dont fancy christmas much -> wrenching time.
Thanks from tourist

This is what it looks like now, 70mm lowered front and 40mm lowered rear.
Will prolly have to muck around a bit with the settings. Did a few race starts just for fun and it feels like I can push it more before the front lifts, but its probably just my mind trying to justify the effort

Thanks from jon andersson, rossb and tourist

Nice! Has that purposeful flat-track meanness to it.

Makes some intuitive sense to me that the centre of gravity could be such that it wants to stay down ...

Videos please

Thanks Tourist!
You know, when you are too close to something for a while you lose perspective, Im worried the bike is becoming a hollywood-wife-thingy-inflatable-boat-lips syndrome spinning out of hand
Of course I'll put the cam on when taking it for a spin
