I am not sure what you are hoping to achieve (theoretically) but longer travel on the front and less on the back sounds like a recipe for a disaster?

I just can not work out any situation that would benefit from that set up.

Just thinking of other (possibly cheaper/easier) ways to lower a std bike.
How would it be a recipe for disaster?
The Cymarc / soupy's lowering kits alter the linkage length which surely will give the same effect of less travel on the rear (shock lenght same but less at the swingarm) but still std length forks . . . . . . .

Seriously not following that.    270 degrees?  That’s not slight adjustment - that’s out of phase.
You don't understand what i wrote, or I'm wrong. On a GS the cam lobe covers about 90 degree of the camshaft.  You can not shift the camshaft while it is lifting the valve, so that leaves about 270 degrees where it can shift it as it a single cylinder camshaft. On the XR you have 4 cam lobes on the camshaft, each 90 degrees apart. Thus impossible to shift the camshaft. What  BMW has done on the RR is put the two 'camshafts' on a splined shaft. Each camshaft shift motor operates two cylinders. But it has way less time than on a GS to shift the cam

Take a standard height bike, and lower by putting on a used low suspension rear shock, and drop yokes down the forks to suit (35mm?) would the suspension ecu and / or ride height sensor require changing to units from a low suspension bike too?
And how do you think the handling would be with longer travel at the front and shorter at the rear?
