There's lift kit from Freespirit so you can use your existing shocks...I think it adds about 1.5"...I am using them on both bikes.

I thought that might've been a C tank! Are you using stock mounting point on that or have they been modified? It sits really good on your bike!

I enlarged the mounting hole on the tab so it can sit lower by abt 1cm.

If you would take pity on a guy building a bike like your xr750 clone, what are your wheel specs, and who built them? It seems everyone runs 19" wheels, but the tire choices are really limiting.
Thank you,
