                      Installation Instructions
        Fits: 1987-2007 Kawasaki KLR650.  Covers PN. KLR650-1 & 2 . 

        *If we counter sink the eyes on the KLR650-1 links they will also fit the 93-96 
        KLX650C and lower the rear 1 5/8th".  See order form for the Kawasaki 
        KLX650-1 listing.

             KLR650-1 Lowers Rear 1.25" &  KLR650-2 Lowers Rear 2" 

***Note:  We have found that the link mounting bolts on some of the later model KLR650's have a longer shank and do not allow our links to tighten up on the center bearing sleeves when using our KLR650-1 or KLR650-2 links.  If that is found to be the case when installing our links we recommend the addition of either a 14 mm split type lock washer or a 15 mm flat washer under the nut of both link mounting bolts. 
 

                                             KLR650-2 Shown Above

1) Raise the motorcycle with a bike stand, milk crate, etc., so the rear wheel is just
    slightly off the ground.  Remove the two 22 mm or 7/8th" nuts on the right end
    of the bolts that hold the two stock links to the rocker and swing arm.  Push the
    17 mm headed bolts out the left side.  **You may have to raise the rear wheel 
    slightly to allow the first bolt to slide out easily. 

2) After removing the stock links you should be ready to install the KoubaLinks. 
    Be sure and grease the existing bearings inside the rocker and swing arm
    where the links mount.  (**Both KoubaLinks are identical and can be used on
    either side.)  Hold the left link in place, (engraving to the outside and
    readable) push the two 17 mm headed mounting bolts in from the left side.
    (You will have to raise the rear wheel to align the link mounting holes.)
    Install the right link engraving to the outside) Install the 22 mm mounting bolt
    nuts on the right side and torque to 40 lb-ft. 

3) For the best performance set the race sag (amount of vertical movement of
    the rear axle FROM no weight to bike weight plus rider weight) at 3 3/4"
    with the KLR650-1 links, and 3 1/2 with the KLR650-2 links. *Sag is set by 
    changing the 5 position preload adjustor on the left side of the shock, or if you 
    have the aftermarket shock with the two large nuts on top of the spring.  Sag is
    measured with the rider in full riding gear, standing on the pegs, and including
    the bikes weight and all carried items. 

4) The front forks can be slid up in the triple clamps .75" until they almost contact 
    the handlebars.  We do not recommend raising the handlebars to allow the
    forks to be slid up farther as the tire and/or the fork brace will hit the fender 
    when nearing full compression.  Disclaimer:  Lowering the rear more than the
    front will change the geometry and could effect the handling.
