Sag question? How much at the shock.

I need to raise the bike 13mm to be at 95mm of sag. What is a rough guess as to how much lower the ring on the shock has to go. I was going to lower the ring 13mm and see where I end up. Get me in the ball park before I gear up and measure sag again.

The shock works at roughly a 3:1 ratio, so figure 4mm or so.

I read somewhere that you get about an 1/8" a turn???

Look at the threads on the shock. Three times that or so, is what you get per turn.

Grey, to tie this in with the other thread going on. When I measured I used where the rear fender meets the number plate, where is makes a little v, and straight down, perpendicular to the ground. Sound kosher?

Some theads make me doubt what I believe to be true. Its nice to ask for clarity and not get slammed.

Thank guys!

That's how I do it.
