Haven't seen anything like this myself, but really the biggest (only?) advantage to independent suspension IS the ground clearance... hate to say it but if you don't want it you probably want a different (straight axle) bike

Wow! They look sweet! Wish that we were allowed to ride them on the roads.

I think it will help with the body roll if i lower it!
And i will use mine on tarmac every day to work and on gravel roads in the weekend!
So ground clearance is not that important for me.
But better handling on the tarmac is.

Thank you all for your help!
Love this forum!

if you look at the back shocks, they are the original ones so that means the front are to. so all they did was put a different spring in the shock..

Get a L8ton racing 11/16" sway bar. It makes the bike perform 150% better on asphalt.

At the race Saturday in the corners I was running third or fourth gear (13t front sprocket) and even with shifting my weight I was pulling the inside front off the ground.

MustangGH was in fifth gear shifting his weight and holding all 4 tires on the ground with hardly any body roll because he has the 11/16" sway bar.

I got "bought wrong bike" statement alot and if I listened to them ,Would have never bought a 700xx. I tell you for this statement is soo wrong.
One of the questions was tree dodging the 700xx. Glad nobody tried that !

Also back on topic Corsasri put his on the road , here in the UK . He maybe able to help on setup.

I tested 2 diffrent Raptor 700 before i baught my XX and they where not to my likeings,
The first new 09 i rode was all bottom grunt and no top.
The second had 5000$ in engine mods on it and that one rocked.
But when i tested the XX all the others was not half as interesting.
And the engine was super smoth and wery nice to drive!

Honda is da shit! :rock:
