Noobie question: Rake & trail for Katana 750 & SV100

I searched the archives and didn't get anywhere on this. So I thought I'd ask here.

I'm looking to buy either the 2004 Katana 750 or the SV1000S; yeah I know they are two different animals. But...

No where (other internet sites, Suzuki dealers, and Suzuki Headquarters) is there any info on the rake and trail on ANY Suzuki.

In fact, Suzuki Headquarters in Brea California, told me that the manufacturer does not disclose this info.


Does anyone here know what the rake and trail numbers are for the above mentioned bikes?

Sv1000 Rake =24.5 degrees Trail = 99mm (3.89 in )

Kat750 Rake= 25.3 degrees Trail = 99.5mm (3.91 in)

Now if somebody could explain Rake and trail to me please.
Actually it was a rethorical question ( humor ). But thanks for saving me the trouble of typing it.
