How to raise bike to stock suspension - May 7, 2010, 07:23 PM

I just bought a 2006 ninja 636, however its lowered 2 inches front and back i believe. I need help returning it to stock height. It seems the dog bones are not adjustable and only has one lowering option, which is 2 inches. I maybe wrong. I sort of understand how to remove the dog bones but would like a detailed description to amke sure im doing it right. Also what is the part number for the stock dog bones?

The main thing im concerned about is returning the forks to stock height. Im pretty confused on how to do this. Thanks!

You need a set of stock dogbones.

Fork need to be loosened up and slid back to stock height

Thanks!! after taking off the fairings, there is actually one other setting. how certain can i be that this is for the stock height? Not sure how manufacturers set up their lowering links...

Can i assume the forks will be easier to raise than the dog bones?

Put the bike on a front and rear stand.

Remove calipers, remove both pinch bolts on each side of the bike holding the shaft, remove the front wheel shaft, set the wheel aside, pull off the small black covers that are screwed in at the sides (pulling out of the the nose assembly), loosen both clamps on the lower section of the triple, loosen the handlebar clamps, loosen the top triple clamp that's holding the top of the fork, and it should slide freely (note: you can remove the front fender if you want, but it's not required).

Move it to your desired height (flush with the top of the triple for this model is stock).

Tighten in reverse order (just have someone support it, as it may slide slightly during the tightening process).

Front axle clamp (otherwise known as the pinch bolts) - 15 lbs
Front axle nut - 94 lbs
Caliper mounting bolts - 25 lbs

Front fork clamp bolts (upper) - 15 lbs
Front fork clamp bolts (lower) - 18 lbs - ((evenly tighten))
Handle bar bolts - 18 lbs

Have a nice day

If you wait for jazz you will be waiting a while. I've only been riding with him like 5 times in the 4 or 5 years we both had bikes. I'll be doing some weekend riding especially after I move to dc end of this month.
