It occured to me that I could also flip the position of the eccentric rear hub to gain rear ride height. I checked last night and the rear axle is above centerline currently, so flipping it would increase ride height. I will have to experiment with it.

Won't that cause the chain to drag over the swingarm ? Dropping the axle centre below the centerline lower may reduce the clearance that the sprocket top has over the swingarm.

Good point. This same swingarm comes with a range of sprockets on different bikes stock, from 39 to 45 tooth, which are about 1" different in diameter. Really going to have to experiment to be sure

I have an SP shock if you want one for a good price. But not sure if it will be too tall in the back afterwards. You'll prob need a different kickstand too
