Performance Design Lowering Link's #70901
Fits - 1987 to 2007 Kawasaki KLR650
Lowering Link information from Performance Design:
When you want to lower your KLR 650, you're best choice would be to install one of our lowering kits. They will greatly improve your handling, while lowering your machine at the same time. These links are much stronger than stock, & are extremely lightweight, and the bushing set-up will outlast the OEM bearing and take more abuse without wearing than the OEM bearing in the stock units, under normal or abusive situations. There's nothing else to purchase (such as bearings etc.) they are ready to install. We are also coat all our links now as well, which fights corrosion very well, along with making their appearance better. Also, if you are building a true motard or Super Moto, & really want the bike to handle, lowering it is a must, you just don't want to get carried away with going too low, as some lowering kits & links actually do. We put just enough safety margin in ours that you won't have any clearance issues due to exhaust or tire sizes or types. However I will say, in certain circumstances you can get away with dropping them slightly lower with no major clearance issues. The other side of the issue is, you will however many times not have the correct suspension geometry. Will it work ok? probably yes, unless you are a racer, or some one who really wants the best handling possible for your dollar & time! So, be extremely careful, if you drop the ht. any more than listed here.
Lower Your Dual Sport
To drop the ride height without losing any travel.
For normal everyday use, or for your Super Moto.
These lowering kits will do you two favors.
They will make your Dual Sports handling greatly improve, without causing any 'off road' clearance problems. They also do not limit wheel travel as the shock type lowering kits do.
They allow people who want to purchase a certain Dual Sport but are just a little to 'lacking of height' to be comfortable, to go ahead and purchase the bike then lower it and get that confidence they want.
They lower the rear of the bike from 1.5 inch to 1.75 inch, depending on how you set your preload. You then simply move the forks up in the triple tree to lower the front, according to the type of riding you do. The links are CNC machined from high quality aircraft aluminum, and coated for a first class long lasting appearance. The link is very 'over-built' and will take whatever you dish out to them under any riding circumstance. Included are complete easy to follow instructions. You do not need to remove the needle bearings from the old link and use, or buy new. They are all set up, and ready to install. The set-up in these will out last OEM needle bearings easily, even under harsh conditions and use!
