Rear means nada if Front is too tall or as the case usually is, too short.

Walk up to it or at least feel it out. B Bike was 320 rear and flush stock length forks. Yikes was Bad  R6 twitchy.
Worked stock forks longer better internals sprung right. Extended fork caps to get taller front bike feels pretty damn solid. Brought rear down a touch as well.

Also keep the back a bit soft on that shock so Bike can squat. I started setting up like Gixer just tossing spring at the rear thinking it will feel better and finally when I went a few steps backward did it start to feel hooked up.

No you didn’t ask.
 I couldn’t stop.
