Baron raise up kit for Yamie Bolt

I received the kit and will install in the coming days. Just need to review how to take off the muffler and check the belt tension to see if there is any difference when the kit is installed. Heavy pieces though. I will follow up with a report after my first test ride. One more inch should definitely allow more leaning without scraping!

Let me know what the difference in handling is like, I've messaged SS Customs myself but it'll be over £100 including shipping to the UK.

Dog bones for my other bike were peanuts.

Installed the raiser kit and the bike definitely feels higher. Riding position unchanged and better handling feel in the twisties. That extra inch of clearance does add to the nimbleness of the bike which feels like it really want to swing right and left. Install was easy with some muscle to pull the shock out off the stock bottom bolt. Will test ride on a tighter, more technical local mountain road in the coming days. For what it's worth, I measured 7 inches from the bottom tip under the peg to the ground.

No adjustments required after installation, eg. belt tension?

Interesting, here I was expecting that the part would align with the shock axis, but now that I think about it, that would be an unstable configuration, like lifting weights with your knees locked.

If you want even more ride height, you can loosen the triple clamp and slide the tubes down until they're flush with the top. You'll lose some of the quickness steering you get from the reduced trail (raising the rear reduces the trail), but raising the front even a little bit will increase your cornering clearance significantly.

Because your overall rear suspension travel does not change, you will still adjust the belt tension as per the manual. However, raising it up an inch will loosen the belt slightly, so you should have to re-tension it. That said, it's probably still within the correct range, especially if it was on the tighter side at the beginning.
