My seat is 3/4" closer to the pavement. I have progressive springs in the forks and cut the spacer down by 1" and the seat height didn't change any at all. You can do all the math you want and it still won't mean a thing.
Ok every one I had a little bit of down time this morning so i did some research on my bike. I started by taking the stock measurement of my 03 750 ace with the bike leveled. I came up with this 11 3/8 from the center of the axle to the edge of the fender, 27 1/2 to the seat height and 6 to the frame. Then I took a peice of 1" flat stock i had in my scrap barrel and drilled 3 holes in it 1 at one end and 2 at the other one 11" from center and one 10 1/2 from center. Just noticed i forgot the stock shock lenght is 12 1/2" but with the wight of the bike they wer closer to 12 1/4".. So i jacked up the bike and removed the shocks the i let the jack down to line up my holes put my homemade strut on and removed the lift. Leveled up the bike and took my measurements with the strut set at the 11" mark. I got 9 7/8 from the axle center to the fender a 1 1/2" difference 26 1/2 at the seat and 5 at the frame a 1" difference for both of them. I then moved my strut to the 10 1/2 hole. Leveled the bike and took the measurements. From the center of the axle to the fender lip I came up with 9 1/8 a 2 1/4 difference. The seat 26 and the frame 4 1/2 thats a 1 1/2" difference. I went one step further and strapped the front end down 2" just to see what my overall clearances would be with my current lowering plans I came up with 25 at the seat and 4" at the frame. These are my findings specific to my bike. And im not saynig every bike will show the same results. Now im ready to order my lowering components. It looked badass closer to the earth
