The following modification shows how I modified my rear shock height. The stock bracket does allow for some ride height adjustment, however it can be insufficient if you have changed over the shock to an aftermarket unit with a different shock height.

Otherwise the modification may be useful if you find the rear of the bike to be sitting too low and you've already maxed out on the adjustment capability.

For this I used 6mm thickness steel, the shock bracket is about 4.3mm. Displace overlap to the outside to keep the inside dimension identical.

Good job there fella =D>

Can the bracket be used again on the original mounting point or does it interfere with the spring?

Unfortunately there is no going back with this one, the shock will only mount in the new position..
Of coarse there is still adjustment with the threaded portion of the bracket, but you will have a new minimum height setting.
