    Tail lift spacer measurement

    Its the Diesel moto billet spacers i was thinking of and i know how much they lift the tail by but i need to know the thickness of the spacer, just the leading (front) and trailing (rear) edges as i want to do a mock up to see if i like it before i buy! Actually the measurements of ANY spacers you have would give me an idea? Thanks chaps for any help or i can give Diesel Moto a call on monday if no luck!

    I'm thinking it's a 1.5 or 22.5 at the end of the tail.

    Id love to get my hands on a set to get some good measurements.

    Edit: 2.5 lol

    Thanks goose! yeah the DM ones raise it by 2.75 inches they say but its hard to guess the other measurements, i blocked it up on 3/4" wooden blocks at the thick end of the gap and it looks spot on to me and i personally wouldn`t want them much thicker than that so i will ring Diesel tomorrow and let you know if i find anything out! Do you think this looks ok on my bike with the 3/4" spacers? IMG_20160703_112228.jpg IMG_20160703_143550.jpg

    I like the slight lift. I'm thinking of doing the same to my bolt.

    FYI I have a custom tail on my bolt. Looks similar to the s tail but not really. It's a DIY.
    Just thought I'd throw that in there before some smarty pants interjects on the cons of a tail lift on a firebolt.


    Oh, and Tony, WHAT THE HELL IS IN YOUR BIRDBATH!

    That bird bath is how the mutant take over of the world begins.
    I just want you to know, it's your fault

    LOLOLOLOLOL

    That tail raise looks nice, but the comfort level is the most important part. If that helps you ride then who cares what it looks like, in this case, it looks great and helps. Talk about a win win
