Installation Instructions
Fits:  Kawasaki 1994-up KLX250/300 and 06-up KLX250H6F Dual Sport. 
 *These links will fit the 09-up KLX250S/SF dual sport and Supermotard models, but lowers the rear 1/4" less than on the 06-08. 
(Link Models KLX2, KLX3 & KLX4)

*These links also fit the 2001-2003 RM125/250.  The KLX4 links lower the Suzuki rear approx. 1 1/4" & require 2 ea. 1/4" flat washers on the mounting bolts to make up for the thicker stock links.  We will suppy them at no extra charge, be sure to let us know your putting them on the 2001-2003 Suzuki RM125/250. 

*The KLX4 links lower the Kawasaki rear approx. 2" but are only for non-aggressive riders that require the maxium lowering.

KLX2 links 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 17 mm nuts from the bolts that hold the links to the rocker and swing arm.  You may have to remove the lower chain roller and the screw holding the bottom of the rubber swing arm protector to allow the link bolts to be removed out the left side. (Not required on the dual sport model KLX250.)  *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. (engraving to the outside, right link is readable, left link reads backwards)   Install the links making sure the link on the nut end of the mounting bolts is over the shoulder on the bolt before tightening. Install the mounting bolt nuts and  torque to 40-60 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 KLX2 links, 3 1/2 with the KLX3 links, and 3 1/4 with the KLX4 links. *Sag is set by tightening or loosening the rear spring preload with the nuts on top of the spring.  Sag is measured with the rider in full riding gear, standing on the pegs, and including all carried items.  If the links are for lowering purposes ONLY, race sag is set at 3.90 inches, and will lower the rear of the bike .75" with the KLX2 links, 1.250" with the KLX3 links, and 2.0" with the KLX4 links. 

4) The front forks can be slid up in the triple clamps .5" until they almost contact the handlebars.  For additional lowering of the front, a second set of the top handlebar clamps can be installed under the bars and tightened with 3/4" longer bolts, that will allow the fork tubes to be slid up an additional ¾ inches. 

Disclaimer:  Lowering the rear more than the front will change the geometry and could effect the handling.  Sliding the front fork tubes up too far can allow the front tire to hit the front fender under hard compression and lock the front wheel, so be careful out there.

          If you like what the KoubaLinks do for your suspension, please tell everyone, if you do not, please tell us.   We can be contacted at our e-mail address below and are always interested in your questions or comments.
