Rear suspension trouble 2012 F800.

Please help. I rebuilt the rear skid of my 2012 F800 and now the rear part of the skid is in the air when sitting on level ground. Everything went back into the same spot. What is wrong?

did you wind up the pre load on your front sikd shock? Or let the limit straps out a bit? Or lower your front suspension shocks?

I would like to see a pic of the bottom mount on the rear shock. The mount can be swivelled around during the reinstall.

I have not seen an installed skid with it swapped in the other direction.

I do know that the skid would look funky with it swapped.

We stopped to eat and noticed other riders coming in with snow jammed in their helmets, jackets and gloves. They had snow everywhere. We looked out the door and couldn't see across the street. Six inches of snow fell while we ate a few burgers. That was the start of a great ride.

It looks like from the pic that the rear mount should be in the lowest hole. You can see wear from the bolt being installed there. Although on my F800 128" track it is installed in the same place as you show in the pic.
