Ride height mods…. The big question
Just thought Id put this out there:
Why would you want to do these mods?
1/. lower the sub-frame.
2/. lower the ride height(pull-rod mod)?
Many years ago I raced a yamaha Banshee, TT, speedway mostly and a bit of MX and was really successful. One of the mods that I did other than add pep suspension was effectively the pull-rod mod, drops the physical height of the bike thus drops the riders seat height and centre of gravity, its effective!.
I now race a DS450 XMX 2013 and love it! I have been reading a lot about the subframe mod however I don't see the point of it. Its only lowering the riders ride height and not the bikes, and as I'm hardly ever in a seated position while racing fail to see the effectiveness of this mod.
Surely droping the physical ride height of the bike (frame) by lengthening the pushrod would be a more effective mod?
Now Ive done neither of these mods on my DS yet and would love to hear peoples thoughts and experiences before I do either if any mod at all.
