Lowering Linkage, 25mmF650 GS, Dakar, G650 GS, Sertao
This linkage set will lower the rear suspension by about 25mm (1 inch) These are top quality linkages, Made In Germany by TRW Lucas and they have been tested and approved by the German Safety authority TÜV.
Here are some things to keep in mind when considering this part:
- You will also want to lower the front suspension. This can be done by positioning the fork tubes higher in the triple clamps. You may also need to install handlebar risers to achieve the necessary clearance.
- With the lowered suspension, the side stand will need to be shortened. This can be done by cutting out a section of the side stand and welding it back together.
- It will be more difficult to place the bike on the center stand unless it is also shortened.
- Ground and cornering clearance will be reduced and you must ride accordingly!
- Installation and related modifications should only be carried out by experienced and qualified personnel.
