Restoring Ride Height on Lowered 2006
Hello to everyone.
Yesterday I bought a 2006 KLR650 from a short man. He had "lowering
links" installed, and had the front fork tubes slid about 3" up in
the clamps. My main reason for buying this bike was the legroom, so
I'd like to restore the stock ride height. I am 6'3" with a 38"
I realize I'll have to buy a standard kickstand to replace the
shortened one on the bike, and of course I'll return the fork tubes
to their regular positions. It's returning the rear suspension to
stock form that has me puzzled.
The previous owner gave me a sack of parts, which he said came off
during the rear-lowering operation. This includes the two dogbones,
which were replaced by the kit items, and two semi-circular white
plastic bushings. He could not remember the purpose of the
bushings, or where they went.
So, can anyone point me to an illustrated disassembly procedure,
perhaps one for installation of the lowering kit, that might
give me a clue as to where these bushings go? Could they be preload
spacers in the shock?
