I wanna find something to give my bike more ground clearance but I'm not sure what to use... I know about eagle miles rm1s and the progressive shock mod. But in trying to get about 10-12 inches of ground clearance. Anybody have any thoughts on the subject?

Uh yea won't happen without spending a lot of money. You would have to replace the forks with something of an off-road bike. New custom shock and linkage.

You would be better off with a more dirt oriented dual sport like a KTM probably would be cheaper in the long run!

Is there a better linkage I should get than? Other than eagle mikes? And what about the eagle mike progressive front forks springs and rear spring?

NWGArider,
I think EM's raising links take full advantage of the available geometry/frame clearance. One can only alter 'X' from factory design.

EM raising links, Aftermarket CUSTOM rear shock and transplanted motocross forks, with appropriate Springs, MIGHT get you to 12" of Ground Clearance. But ARE Your legs Long Enough for a 39-40" tall seat height?
Of course you could Custom Cut the seat foam and 'drop it' back to 37-38" seat height.

My Question is, WHY do you Want To?
Maybe a KTM 990 Adventurer is What you NEED? For a FEE.
