I find that for the riding I do, I could sacrifice suspension travel to lower the seat height of my bike. Anybody know who has the best "link kits" to accomplish this?. Where can I pick them up?

Lowering Kit

If you ride a KLR 650 this is the site you will need the most ! These guys are great with help, advice and parts that will save you money versus OEM stuff. Go to the site, then site map and scroll down to the klr 650 area. you will see a lowering link, plus a bunch of other stuff you'll want... Good luck and have fun.

I just lowered the front end of my KLR650 1.5 inches by loosening the triple clamp bolts, and letting the fork tubes slide up 1.5 inches. Might work on your bike.

Lowering KLR 650

Just finished lowering my KLR 650. Lowered the triple clamps 1.5 inches, and installed Dual-Star lowering links for the rear suspension. I saved quite a bit by modifyig the side stand myself. I have a thirty two inch inseam, and I can now get both feet flat on the ground when stopped where it was tippy toes before. If you need the exact dimensions and method of shortening the side stand send me an email. [email protected].

BolderKeith, If you lower your KLR 2" for example, would you also lower the front 2" to keep the riding geometry correct? I would appreciate some help on this from anyone else as well, I'm planning on doing my 09 KLR in the near future.
