I need some help bringing my bike back to the proper altitude.

The previous owner had brought it down over an inch up front and closer to two out back. Feels like I'm always riding up hill. He had an adjustable drag link that even tightened all the way the tail is in the weeds. Any one have their old stock one laying around?

Yes, have OE front and rear suspension components and I'm not that far away (Charlotte). Send me a PM.

Note, I have an 08. I'm not familiar with the older models so not sure if this will help you.

Turns out i had the stock link in a bag with the parts for the tail rack I'll never use. Swapped it in in 20 minutes, dropped the forks back down 3/4 inch and reset the preload front and rear and adjusted the rebound on the shock. Feels like a whole new animal. Much better feed back front the front end now. I still want to raise the rear a little more, so I'm looking into shortening the drop link to get a little more lift.
