        This is just a guide, be aware changing the geometry of the bike will change the way it rides or could make it unpredictable when cornering. Get someone like Marty Moose to have a look at it and set it up properly if he has time.

          thanks guys, would it be a wise idea to get a paddock stand before doing any work to the bike? or is working on it with just the kick stand just fine?

            I don't think their will be a need for a stand. All measurements will be taken with both wheels on the ground and the bike upright.

                And don't listen to people who tell you to wind everything up to max. Even if they might be joking...

                  It makes lubing your chain a hell of a lot easier. If you don't have a centre stand, get a paddock stand.
                  “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa
