Single Lowering Link Installation

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PRIOR TO INSTALLATION

Soupy's Single Lowering Link

  • Do not adjust the link prior to installation.
  • Left hand threads are designated by notches on the center hex body.
  • Rod end bearings are lubricated for life, but require inspection every 500 miles for smooth operation.
  • Use Red Loctite on all threads.
  • The maximum hole-to-hole, center-to-center length for each of these links, not to be exceeded is:
    • ’04-’06 Yamaha R1 9 ½”
    • ’07-‘08 Yamaha R1 9”
    • ’03-’05 Yamaha R6, ’06 Yamaha R6S, ’07-‘08 Honda 600RR 8”
    • ’02-’03 Yamaha R1, ’99-’02 R6 Yamaha 7 ¾”
    • ’99-’00 Honda F4, ’01-’06 Honda F4i 6 ¼”
    • All years Triumph Daytona 675 & Street Triple 7”.

DO NOT EXCEED THIS LENGTH!

1. Remove current link.
2. Install Soupy’s Lowering Link with aluminum spacers installed in the rod ends. The end furthest from the center hex body should be installed toward the rear of the bike.
3. Tighten lowering link lock-nuts.
4. Inspect bike height; adjust as desired (not to exceed the maximum length).
5. When adjusting the bike extremely low, some bikes may need a slight amount of material removed from the bottom of the shock mount for clearance.
