Geometry/Tyres

The whole reason why I would like to make a geometry change is that I would like to change from oem tyre to a new tyre and a geometry change is required for mechanical grip.
I found these important functions,
The effects of what the rear ride height changes do to the front, also what the front does to the rear and also it’s primary.

[REAR CHANGES EFFECTS]
When lower rear shock ride height (shorten shock length) this then increases fork Trail/Angle.
When raise Rear Ride height (increase shock length) this then decreases fork Trail/Angle.
Also primarily when lower rear ride height “shock length” this decreases swing arm angle, when raise rear ride height “shock length” this increases swing arm angle.
Has effects on wheelbase also, increasing ride height lengthens wheelbase, lowering ride height shortens wheelbase.

[Front change Effects]
When raise forks lowering front ride height this then decreases rear swing arm angle.
When lower forks raising front ride height this increases rear swing arm angle.
Primarily when Rising front forks lowering ride height this then decrease trail also decreasing wheelbase.
When lower forks through triple raising front ride height this increases trail also the wheelbase.

[Rear Axle Position Effects]
From stock position when lengthen wheelbase this then decreases swing arm angle.
When Shorten wheelbase this then increases swing arm angle.

I hope this is a big help!
