GSXR K8 Swing-arm pivot height kit

Folks,
When the '08 GSXR-1000 came out, Suzuki advertised "Optional kit parts adjust swing-arm pivot height for racing set-up. " Does anybody have experience with this kit? Where might I be able to get more info and possibly buy it?

I didn't get anything useful with google or on RonAyers.

-Curt

Hey Curt, sorry to ask a stupid question...but what would adjusting the pivot height change in performance of the bike?

Yep, I'll be doing that too. Did you have the yoshi swing arm pivots on your liter bike?

Just got off the phone with Yoshimura and, no luck. None in the US or Japan. They have already switched to the '09. The good news is that the gentleman from yoshi is going to talk to a couple of the race teams and see if he can find a used set.

Racetech makes them still, I think.

I raises the pivot 10mm IIRC.

that looks fairly easy for a competent machine shop.........
10m seems like a little too much from this. (i dont see too much off set)

There are two options, 2mm and 3mm. I'm after the 2mm.
