I had a bit over 1-3/4" or 44-45 mm difference in rear static sag. (on the stand)
So in theory at least, that is what it should be at the seat aswell.
17" wheels lower it another 1-1/2" to 2".
It's just too short for my liking, hence the reason for running full length sussies now. I'm 6'4"…
It gives me somewhere to put my foot, and has much better footpeg clearance.
***This is a 2005 FS650, so ymmv with a \70°\ bike.
FWIW, my FS650 with oem sussies is taller than a buddy's FS570.
First measurement was with an 04 FS650 shock. It was the same eye to eye as my 05 FS shock when I measured it a year ago.
Second measurement was with my 05 FS shock after servicing it and removing the spacer that shortens it. *Catalyst Reaction Tuning in the SF bay area did the shock.
It appeared to be the same length eye to eye as my 05 FE650 shock.
I know, totally different bike...but that's what the older bikes mic out at.
