Description

The stock spring and shock damping seem to be set up for a rider of approximately 160 lbs and a rider of 250 lbs or one running bike with full panniers has to run the preload maxed out and the ride gets uncomfortable. A new shock and spring assembly costs quite a bit of money. Even replacing a spring on the factory shock can be challenging for the average rider that doesn’t have the proper tools. This links slightly change the rear suspension geometry. The bike will sit slightly higher in the back. They will also take more weight to compress the suspension as compared to the stock setup.

The Eagle Mfg & Eng Suspension Raising Links are sold as a pair.

    If you need a lift...this'll do it!

    My wife and I ride the KLR together most days so I needed something that would give the bike a slight lift for our combined 320lbs. I’m 6′ 2″ with a 34″ inseam and the new lift still leaves me quite able to stabilize the KLR without a problem. We have a tail pack and saddle bags as well and these new dog bones allow me to leave the preload at 2 or 3 instead of 5 with them loaded for a weekend getaway. The OEM side stand is now useful with the tail of the bike lifted 3/4″. Centre stand now just allows the rear wheel to clear the ground for chain maintenance.
    Great product that eliminates the rear sag that we were experiencing…the bike…not us..lol..!!!

    Not worth it

    Renders SW motech centre stand useless.
    Not a fan of the riding dynamic after the install. Too much weight on the front wheel even after being fully loaded.

    Just as advertised.

    Easy to install. Tons on YouTube. Lessens the mechanical advantage of the suspension linkage by raising the bike, which increases the preload but does not make it stiffer as some may say.
