    So the shock can be adjusted only for ride height??
    Technically, its sag/preload which alters the ride height.

    Seems like you are a CBR owner, were you looking to purchase an SF?

    The new accessories page for Gixxer is listing a skidplate. Is it worth considering to attach it? Sometimes I find the bottom scraping when I come across a bumper with a heavy pillion. I wonder if this will behave with SF's fairing

    It might be useful for those bottom scrapping bro. I'm not sure about its fitment for sf as it comes with full fairing

    Tell you what, look at the image carefully then go out to your bike, get on your knees and look under the bike. You will find that the skidplate comes no where close to interfering with the lower side fairings (the side fairings are a 2 piece design, upper and lower). But the skid plate was designed mainly for the naked gixxer since it can traverse a rougher terrain than the SF due to absence of the fairing in which case a skidplate would protect it from the hazards of a rough terrain such as large rocks or sudden sharp angled edges etc.

    SF was designed mainly to be ridding on plain roads. The catcon and exhaust pipe are made of out steel it seems so you dont have to worry about scrapings.

    Yes, I was thinking about the Fairing factor. I guess I will just avoid carrying heavier pillions. This happened only twice and I stopped carrying heavier people.

    Let me solve that issue in a technical manner for you. Its not that your bike is hitting the ground because you have a heavier pillion. Its because you are Letting the bike hit the ground. Its all about riding technique. You need to roll your bike over a bump or a speedbreaker in a smooth fashion. If you do sudden jerky movements the rear shock will try to compensate by compressing excessively and hence the CatCon will hit the ground. Another thing you can do is Stiffen up the rear suspension meaning increase the preload.

    Last Night when I was riding my Gixxer SF, I was riding in the 2nd Gear and increased the speed in an instant to overtake, I was about to change the gear and suddenly a foolish biker came from wrong way so to stop I applied the brakes and as soon as I released the clutch to get over the speed, the gear box made a sound like sliping of gear , can anyone help.?
