I just dropped the forks so they are flush. Looks like 525.5mm from top of lower triple to center of axle. Also my initial rear axle length was wrong as my chain was way too loose. The length is 597mm with a 42 rear sprocket.

Those changes will give you a lot more stability.

I’m looking forward to trying out the changes. I appreciate all the input from your and Mike. Maybe this will allow me to start riding the bike like it’s intended LOL

Got off the phone with Thermosman today. He said my shock is at 320 mm. He said a lot of his Moto America riders use that setting. I obviously wasnt measuring correctly.

Need to have at least a few rounds of PRE load in the shock before measuring eye to eye. I find it easier to get a good measurement by using a rear large set of calipers or I run long bolts through eyes and measure center to center.
You will measure short. Also unless you get the longer lower eyelet 319-320 is about as long as you can safely go.
