Do suspension settings change ride height?

When you set the suspension for "two up", does it change ride height?

2 up setting does indeed raise the static ride height.

"She who must be obeyed" comments when climbing aboard.

Thanks, bobv.  This made it easier to place on the center stand, although still takes quite a push.  I saw that movie "She"

Not by much if you're comparing one person for a one setup setting and two people for a two setup setting.

Not if the weight of the rider and passenger matches what Triumph calculated to retain the proper static sag.
