Interesting mod that you propose. A couple of things that I think will change with the 18": overall gearing will be higher unless you also install a smaller front and/or larger rear sprocket(s). As the bike will be raised from the back, the rake will become slightly steeper (numerically lower) and trail slightly less, This would make the steering a little quicker, and maybe twitchier on sand and gravel. Not enough to make the bike feel like a Gixxer, but something to think about.?

If your speed is measured off the front sprocket, you'll have to install a correction device as well.
