Given the geometry of the rear shock, do you think there is a way to raise the height of the vulcan?
Thanks for your thoughts

I saw on ebay that you can buy replacement rear suspension struts otherwise known as Dog Bones that can raise the ride height by changing the length of the strut.

Why would you want to?
I am interested in raising the ground clearance. I realize that the bike will never be a dirt bike, but I am looking to make it slightly more able to handle dirt roads and fire roads. I know that the biggest change I can make would be tires, but I am wondering about other geometry that would help raise the bike.

Thanks, I didn't know about this. I did little searching and found some lowering kits for other kawasaki bikes that would probably work to lower the ride, but I am not having luck finding any dogbones that are short and would raise it. an inch shorter might make an impact when combines with other things(tires, exhaust).
