Mamola Boxercup v BCR seat height

Postby Yankee Lima » Sun Sep 23, 2018 4:16 pm

Hi folks

Could anyone on here shed some light on actual seat heights between these models?
Mamola looks much lower than BCR and what is the difference in suspension set up?

How could BCR be modified to match Mamola set up? (Apologies in advance as this notion is probably sacrilege to purists on here)

Thanx
YL

not sure of height difference but it's because the RWB Boxercup has a shorter torque arm and forks from a GS (or so I was told) as the racers were scraping the pots too easily

IIRC the torque arm is the same (365mm?) on the Mamola and BCR, Mamola has a shorter shock bottom stem, and the RWB BCR has a much taller one, along with a taller seat profile. so easiest way to lower the BCR to the same as a Mamola is to fit a std seat and an adjustable aftermarket shock or a Mamola std shock.
