This is currently underway! Me and a friend are working on them. I'll have more info by late February.

here's a quick one i drew up just now.

i had to adjust the dimensions slightly so this could be cut out of a length of 2" bar. so there's a little less meat on the front of the bracket than stock, but that shouldn't make a difference.

there was room to steal 10mm from the clevis height (plenty of clearance to the shock still) that is made up by the addition of the adjuster nut. then 10mm is added to the length of the threaded section. as it's pictured this would be stock ride height, as you crank the nut up, your right height inceases by the distance between the top of the clevis and the nut. all you'd have to do is lift the tank, loosen the hold down nut, crank the adjuster nut, then tighten the one under the tank again. no need to suspend the rear end at all.
