    Here is the question:
    I installed OME Dakars last week and the lift is pretty dramatic compared to the front.
    I want a mild lift in front so the rake isn't so crazy.
    Can I use stock spring perches on 5100's set a 0?
    How much lift to expect?
    BTW, having springs that actually work is pretty great....I had no idea it would feel this good.
    Thanks.

    I don't know about stock spring perches, I'd use the ones meant for 5100's. As far as 883's, you can use them on 5100's and you can expect 1.5" of lift out of them when you set the 5100's at 0.

    I don't remember....Did I get new perches with the 5100's?
    If that's the case, I can just plug and play the OME 883's?
    It makes sense.....
