So I just bought it about 2 weeks ago and was going to raise rear back to stock.but when I looked at dog bone it was on first hole towards the front..the other holes lower it even more.they used gsxr adjustable dog bone..but since its on first hole shouldn't that be stock? Bike is about 2 inch drop..I just orderd stock dog bone so will that raise it to stock hight..just don't know why it is on highest setting and still low? Is it because they used gsxr adjustable dog bone? If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

That would be my first guess.
I have no idea what the aftermarket link length is, but going back to an OEM link will return it back to normal.
I'm probably guessing the forks were lowered to match lowered rear, so raise those forks back to stock as well, which is at the first line from the top of the fork.

Thanks I've got the front back to stock.but when I went to raise the rear,I saw it was on the first hole setting and there is to more setting that lower it even more..don't know why the first setting wouldn't have made it stock hight,mabye because they used gsxr lowering links..but I'm hoping the stock dog bone raises it back up..hate feeling like I'm gonna drag the exhaust.thanks for ur reply..I've had r1 all my life and love the rc more than the r1..just hope the gsxr five bone first setting was still to low..should get stock dogbone Thursday..and again thanks and if anyone else has any input I would love to hear..thanks again guys..

If the linkage wasn't designed for the RC (not likely as they aren't common candidates for lowering), then it doesn't really matter what hole you put it in. It won't be the same since it is too short or long. Toss it in the trash and get the stock unit installed and forget about anything else.
