Does anyone make a kit to to lift the rear end? I know on the gsxrs, you can get some longer dogbones. I want to come up 1 or 2 inches.

Shorter* dog bones. The longer, the lower it goes. Good luck finding some, I've never looked and I've never seen any.

You wanna raise the rear 1 or 2" why in the world would you want to do that? Thats to much. What exactly are your plans for the bike because raising the rear that high will ruin any of them.

Get a dk link and you'll be happy with it.

Just add a shim / washer to the bottom of the shock mount, takes half an hour and is almost free, I went with 4mm.

I'm interested in the HRC style linkage, would this work with the standard rear shock?

If you're referring to the HRC link, it won't work as the HRC link is designed to use a shock with an eyelet lower mount.
The Dan Kyle link uses the HRC link geometry, but uses the OEM clevis style lower shock mount.
It raises the rear by around 13mm and changes the rising rate ratio from progressive to linear.
It definitely quickens the turning response. Try it with a 190/55-17 rear tire.
You may be quite pleased.

Yeah thats the one. I was thinking hrc/mori/dankyle/this on

So running the stock showa rear shock with one of these would work alright? I'd planned on trying a 190/55 next tire regardless.

How much of a ride height change does adding the 4mm shim give? The bike on its side stand is still ok with it added would I need to extend the side stand after swapping out the link?

Adding the DK link precludes the use of a shim.
Both the link and the shim raise the rear and quicken the steering.
Don't do both.
With the DK link in place, the bike does lean a bit on the side stand.
You can just be careful or order an extendable side stand.

Yeah I was aware that it was one or the other, I'm just wondering if the changes to the action of the shock would be worth it on the stock showa unit.
