_As you can see from the picture, static weight bias with the rider aboard is very critical at the MotoGP level. For most sportbike riders and club-level racers, however, it’s very difficult to change static weight bias (as measured when the bike is stationary) and more important to consider what’s happening when the bike is on the road or track — dynamic weight bias. A common misconception is that raising or lowering the front or rear of a bike changes weight bias; many racers refer to raising the fork tubes in the triple clamps as “putting more weight on the front end.” But in fact, changing ride height a few millimeters has little effect, shifting a few pounds at most even with a larger change. To significantly adjust weight bias you would have to move something big and heavy — like the engine, fuel tank or rider — forward or rearward. Another option is to move almost the whole bike relative to the wheels, by shortening or lengthening the swingarm or changing rake to move the front wheel in or out. Of these options, the easiest is to move the rider around using different clip-ons, rearsets and modifying the seat — still not easy modifications.
