I'm building a CB350F with a 400F engine.
I've ordered, and received my beaut tank and seat combo from Legendary Cycles in the US. Mock fitted it, and decided not to go with the loop on the frame as the seat is a little wider than the frame and I think it would look odd. So now I'm at the point where I need rear shockies. I don't have an original set to work from and new sets come in so many different sizes. In short, I have no idea what size I need. I measured the distance from eye to clevis and 340mm would suit alright, but I can't test this without purchasing a set that need to come from Niche Cycles in the US. I'm trying to stick to a budget after all.
I suppose my real question is, will the 340mm still sit like that once I add the bulky 400F engine into the frame? Or will I experience some "sag" once the engine is in?
The engine weighs about 70kgs, which is about my weight. Should I go for something more like a 365mm to allow for this? I don't want the bike to sit "ugly" in the arse. I want that nice level even look to it.
As always, any help is most appreciated.
