   Installation Instructions
Fits:  02-up DL650/1000 (including the new style 2012 models) and
       03-up SV650.  (PN's. V-Strom-1 & V-Strom-2) 
 (V-Strom-1 lowers the rear 3/4" &  V-Strom-2 lowers the rear 1 1/8") 
V-Strom-2 shown above.  (Lowers rear 1 1/8" on the V-Strom and 3/4" on the SV650.)

1.  Raise the motorcycle with the center stand, jack, etc., so the rear wheel is just slightly off the ground.  *(Be careful not to bend the exhaust if you do not have the center stand)  Remove the two 17 mm socket size nuts from the bolts that hold the links to the rocker and swingarm.  Push the front mounting bolt out the out the left side.  You may have to lift up on the rear wheel slightly to allow the front bolt to slide out freely. After removing the front bolt,  then you will need to raise the tire and swingarm up as far as possibe to allow the rear bolt to pass by the exhaust on the DL1000's. 

2.  Remove both stock links and you should be ready to install the new KoubaLinks.  Before installing these links, you may want to put some grease on the needle bearings inside the rocker and swingarm mounts.

3.  Now that the stock links are removed, install the KoubaLinks in reverse order of the removal of the stock links, engraving and countersinks go to the outside, both links are identical. 

4.  After pushing the rear mounting bolt in from the left side, you will have to raise the rear wheel/swingarm up again until the front mounting bolt aligns with the rocker mounting hole, then push that mounting bolt back in from the left side. Install both 17 mm socket sized nuts and torque to approx. 40 lb-ft. 

5.  Depending on which KoubaLinks you have, determines if and how much the rear is being lowered, so keep in mind if you lower the rear one inch etc., to maintain the same geometry (if desired) the front would require approx. the same amount of lowering. The V-Strom-1 links will lower the rear of the V-Strom 3/4" and the "V-Strom 2" links will lower the rear 1 1/8". ( 3/8" & 3/4"on the SV650)  Do not slide the front fork tubes up in the triple clamps more than necessary, as the fender/tire could come in contact with the bottom of the triple clamps.  Sliding the fork tubes up less than 1" is preferred. Lowering the rear more than the front should make the bike more stable when going strait, but also will not turn as quickly.  To make it turn quicker (if desired) the forks can be slid up in the triple clamps (maximum 1") and/or by increasing the rear spring preload to raise the rear. 

If you like what these links do for your suspension, please tell everyone, if you do not, please tell us.  Thanks for purchasing our products.
