Some bikes may accept hardware-store washers, but the Suzuki's is big. Try these anodized shims (5) from Traxxion Dynamics ($19.95; www.traxxion.com ). They come in three thicknesses: 2mm, 3mm and 4mm. Select the one you want and place it over the threaded part of the clevis (6), making sure it lays flat. The shim must be between the clevis and the frame. Now simply reinstall the clevis and upper-shock bolt. Torque to specs, approximately 50 foot-pounds for the clevis (7) and 37 foot-pounds for the shock bolt. With the rear suspension still hanging free, check the new ride height. Here, a 3mm shim increases ride height by 12mm. Measure the change on your bike and make a note of it (8). Alter the ride height 10-15mm at a time and see how you like it.
