XR650 L Lowering Link

Helped mine quite a bit but I use it in SM....lookin back, it is a plonker and not a stadium MX'er so would do it in the dirt too...

i like the height.....but then again im 6' 2''

I am only 5' 8" and cant plant my feet, Im not real used to not being able to put both feet down.

yeah....thats kinda important when ridin such a heavy bike.

I bought one and had some issues with the grease zerks... tapped the wrong size and found out after I'd installed the bearings. I'd make sure they're tapped to 6mm threads, like the zerks oem....manufacturer said to just block them off because the newer models don't come with zerks installed anymore anyways...............a pretty dumbass comment when they screwed it up in the first place if you ask me!!

I just installed a Kouba link on my '94 L and I like it- easy to install and lowered the bike about one inch.

I used the XRs only lowering link it was good for 1.5 inches plus I slid the front forks up to help out a little more, I am only 5'7". I also trimmed the seat foam some and recovered the seat this works well but I don't recommend this for rides over an hour it may make your backside kinda tired. Also the XRs only link is tapped correctly for the Zerk fittings that come out of your stock link. :thumbsup:

I mounted my link two days ago. Piece of cake puttin it on. Real nice link and has grease point already on it. It lowered my bike 1.5 inches which really helps me alot. I am really satisfied with the outcome of this small addition!

I have the kouba link installed in my '03 XR650L. It lowered it from barely being able to "tip-toe" to allowing me to sit flat footed – which made it worth every penny.

I forgot to mention- the Kouba links come with the zerk fittings installed already.

You can actually plant both feet? I can plant one solid or both pretty good. It would have dropped it about 3 inches if I could plant both feet.
