Does sag adjustment affect seat height? (VFR800)


Recommended Posts

I measured my sag (40 front, 44 rear) but the rear preload adjustment isn't how or where I expected to find it. I'll wait for the heynes manual to arrive in a couple of days. Does adjusting the preload change the seat height? Ideally I'd like to drop 20mm but anything would be welcome.

Next post could well be about how to drop seat height!

Suspension Sag will change seat height marginally but don't use it in that context as it will affect the handling especially to lower 20mm

You may need a lowering kit and depending on your bike how this is done

Sone have sculpted seats

Others use extended) shortened suspension links .

Others use shortened suspension

Sag could require softer springs.... ..

Cheers. Mine is a 2011 so just out side that ( have messaged them). I have the original owner's address so I might drop him a line to see what mods he might have dome to it. It looks like he cared for the bike. He didn't ride it often (>1000miles/year) but when he did he used all the tyres!
