hello,

any ideas on how I can raise the clearance on my 01 monster? I have that stinking wishbone design and I can't use the adjustable tie rods. any input would be greatly appreciated.

thx,
nelson

You can get a longer wishbone. I think the Rizoma's are about 1" longer aand there are some others. If the heim joints are threaded all the way in, you can back them out 3/4" or so.

You could also look for an 888 style suspension rocker, which is adjustable.

If you check the Rizoma's let us know if you can confirm they are acually longer I have not been able to confirm that, and have even been told by a dealer they are the same? I have also seen another wishbone maybe from S&P that may also be longer?
Here is a link on adjusting the heim joints to get some more in the rear..... The other option is to buy a adjustable height shock along with the adjusting the hoop. Which is prolly a good way to do it....

WRT ducatisuit instructions, I didn't bother measuring the length but based on his allowance for 13mm to remain engaged, just measure that length when you screw the heims in. Measure the same remaining length on both sides and this should do.
