    Oh no.... Not a S1000XR Chopper !

     So I bought this 2016 xr low mileage (2200) beauty just before Xmas. Put a few hundred miles on her, amazing machine just love it .Hauls balls handles very nice. It has a Soupy set of lowering links on it as I'm able to flat foot it pretty close.(31" inseam on a good day)
    I do not have the oem rear link in hand, but I contacted Soupys to get the original measurement pivot point to pivot point, they say 6 1/2"
    I measure the Soupys link on the bike and come up with approx 7 1/2". With the bike on the center stand big gap, ground to tire close to 3"
    The front fork tubes are raised slightly with 11mm of the gold tube above the triple clamp.(oem approx 5mm)
    I'm guessing the forks are not raised enough compared to the rear .
    I would like to start over back to stock dimensions and minimize the lowering adjustment to what is absolutely necessary .
    So does anyone have the original rear link that could confirm the measurement soupy's provided?
    I appreciate any and all input!
    BTW this friggin bike is da bomb , hard keeping that stupid grin off the face lol !
