I have 7mm free sag, 27mm rider sag with the linkage altered with shorter dogbones, 185lb. rider. Keep in mind the weight of the bikes varies widely too, so just spring rate and linkage, combined with rider weight, is not enough for a "baseline". My SV weighs about 320 wet.

Good point Jarel.
Yours is a fairly extreme example, with most SVs being fairly close (+/-10lb?), but the weight is worth taking into account.
Thanks

Still, I'd be curious what spring rate you get those numbers with.  You listed everything BUT that.

Would like to hear from others too.

Thanks

Street bikes, yes +/- 10 lbs. depending upon what they've done with the exhaust. But track bikes are all over the board. Mine's probably one of the lighter ones, but it's not unusual to find a track bike 40-50lbs. lighter than stock. I forget for sure what spring I'm running now, but I think it's 600#.
