Best Suspension Set Up

I just picked up an 06 636. It's been lowered 3 inches and the rear shock is set as soft as it can go. It has a 52 tooth on the rear, don't know what's on the front, but that mother is hard as 773H to raise the front tire. It prefers to spin the tire even though it's soft.

Lowering it has obviously changed the angle of the thrust through the swingarm and I actually soften my rear suspension on my GSXR to keep the front down.

Recommendations?

With a swingarm, I stiffened my rear to make it spin less.

need to raise your idle. 52 on the rear sucks 55 to 60 is better.

With a longer swingarm its easier to spin. The addition of the long swingarm added leverage to the rear suspension thus making it softer. I had to stiffen it up to cut some of it down. I was jusy making the point that when mine was all the way sift, it spun more than after adding some spring pressure.

Oh, - - no, I don't have a "longer" swingarm, sorry if I wrote that in a confusing way. No - the bike has had lowering links added to it. It's real close to the ground and I'm 6'2" with long legs.

But it just seems logical to me that if the pivot point of the swingarm is up higher the trust from the real axel will transfer to the frame in an upward angle (to raise the front) rather than the almost perfectly horizontal line it's in now.

Makes sense.

Maybe I can trade up a few sprockets for a 60 also.
Right now I'm in major need of a chain, but adjusting suspension is something I can do without cost.

depends on brand but usually around 80 bucks and the you have to add in the chain as well. all together around 200 for a good set up or maybe you could find a used on cheaper to begin with

I can pull up my stock set up GSXR 1000 easier. Much easier, and I've even softened the rear, so I agree, I don't NEED a larger sprocket, but it certainly helps for stunting under 80mph.

Definitely need a chain. This sucker actually has a few links that won't even bend around the REAR sprocket. I don't know how the make it around the front!!. but you can surely hear it !!
