Default raising the rear end?

Hey everyone, I was just wondering if there is something I can do to raise the *** end. I was hoping there is something that is similar to lowering links but the opposite. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Thanx

because I want to sit a little higher, I understand that it will increase the steering angle but I am only looking at a quarter inch or so. I am not racing or tracking this bike.

have you tried adjusting the sag (preload) on the rear shock spring?

Yes sag was done, rear at 1 inch and front at a lil under 3/4 inch. Compression and rebound set for street/twisties. I bumped up compression a litttle more on the rear. Anyways is there an adjustable link available?

Try the wera forum, raising the rear on F4i's is a very common mod for racers. I think they use spacers somehow but not sure exactly how they do it.
