Motorcycles only come in one height, yet people come in a wide variety of heights. If you find the bike you wish to buy or have bought is too tall for you, your feet don’t touch the ground or you don’t get a secure footing there are options. Picking up a motorcycle after its fallen over can shatter your confidence in riding, often the answer is fitting a lowering link. We stock KoubaLink Yamalink and KroozR lowering links.
Lowering links can also be used for subtle geometry changes on competition offroad bikes such as KTM Yamaha Husqvarna Gas Gas Kawasaki and others.
Lowering Links can create a lowered seat height by altering the rear suspension geometry and are often available in a variety of heights. They are machined from billet aluminium and assembled using OEM quality bearings and seals.
Fitting a linkage is as simple as replacing the stock motorcycle linkage. There are exceptions, the late model KTM 690 needs machining of the linkage to fit the lower option links. If such changes are needed they will be listed on our website and in product instructions.
We are often asked why motorcycles are so tall? Modern offroad motorcycles strive to have high ground clearance and long sus pension travel for added offroad ability. The downside is high seat heights. Lowering the motorcycle will also lower the centre of gravity making the bike easier to handle for younger or shorter riders.
