Hmm, well, maybe that's what the difference is then 'cause I tend to increase the ride height in the rear and drop the front end about 8mm with the GSXR front end setup.

With the stock SV setup, I do about the same thing though, but it still feels lower in the seat.

I personally still feel like the GSXR setup is a more planted and stable platform with much more confidence/ feel/ control in the front end to boot.

If there was a way for people to do a "blind" test with the built GSXR front end vs a built SV front end on the SV that people would prefer the GSXR front end every time.

That's just me though... maybe....
I am Tyler Durdin's bad attitude.
