Dangerboy plates for kona

EVERY ONE READ THIS

Putting the new rockers on a kona stinky or coiler will throw off the ratio of the shock. you usally have the ratio of 3 to 1 or lower on a fs bike. my stinky on its stock mode is less it is about 2.75 to 1. With the dangerboy plates it gives you the option of adding 1 or 2 inches to that. adding one inch to make it a 6 inch bike makes the ratio 3 to 1 and the 7 inch setting 3.25 to one which will make a diffrence in the way it rides and fells. but there is a solution to this! if you buy a new shock with a 1/4 longer stroke and place the shock in the six inch setting of the plates it will give you about 7 inches without messing up the ratio of 3 to 1 there for making the bike still feel and ride just as good as all the other 7 inch bikes. i know kona does not like the idea of the plates but i love it. (old shock size 7.875X2) (new shock size 7.875x2.25) my 26 inch tire does not hit the seat post but i dont know about the coilers.
