Soupy's R1 (1998-01) Single Style Lowering Kit
This 1998-2001 Yamaha R1 rear lowering kit consists of:
- Soupys Single Style Lowering Link
- Pair of replacement triangles. Install these to move the rear lowering link mount downward and provide necessary clearance
- Usage instructions
If you need custom adjustable links made to possibly raise or raise/lower the bike, we can do that.
Our turnbuckle style lowering link will adjust the rear of the bike infinitely between stock height and a 4 inch drop. No need to remove the link from the bike. Simply loosen the nuts and rotate the center hex body. Never again will you need to remove bolts and find a way to hold the bike up while you are doing it! The body is gold zinc plated steel or stainless steel, NOT aluminum. Aluminum threads DO NOT last and are dangerous! The ends have a 1/2" thread and are zinc plated steel for strength and corrosion resistance. The ball bearing is hardened steel with a Teflon race. There are also 4 inserts that make up the difference in the diameter and length of the stock bearing setup. We manufacture, assemble, market and sell these links...thats why we can offer them at such a great price.
THIS IS A DIRECT BOLT-ON ITEM!
Keep in mind that motorcycles lowered 1 inch or more should utilize our adjustable kickstand to maintain the required lean angle when parked. Combo kits are available at a discounted price. Click here for our Adjustable Kickstands.
