Greetings fellow enthusiasts, anybody tried these adjustable links? I found my 2004 too high for the off road stuff i have been doing. I'm 5'9" 175#. Seen these new adjustable links on ebay, looks okay to me....what do the people that know think?
lowering the back only will slow the steering angle, makes a bit of a chopper out the bike. We always shorten the front and rear appropriately (not necessarily equally) to preserve or even enhance the steering geometry and lower the seat height. Any lowering of the bike will hurt the ground clearance too. Because lowering links allow the tire to rub under the fender and tag, shortening the shock internally (and upgrading the valving and springs appropriatley while in there) will lower the bike while maintaing the oem bottoming as designed. (no rubbing)
Motorcycle chassis alignment, geometry and custom suspension upgrading is what I specialize in.
