stiffen ride

I was thinking of buying a lowering kit for my BMW K1300GT and was wondering if it will stiffen the ride. Or affect the smoothness of the ride any.

A: You shouldn't notice either of those problems unless you change the preload of the shock.

lowering kit

I need to know if the lowering kit that I have in my 2014 Suzuki V Strom 650 could be use in a Yamaha Super Tenere 1200 year 2015?

A: Unfortunately our V-Strom 650 lowering links will not fir the Super Tenere. We do have Super Tenere lowering links and adjustable kickstand in stock and ready to ship. Find our items for that bike here:

MT10 Lowering kit

Do you know if the 2015-16 YZF R1 kit will fit the new MT10 model Yamaha as it is the naked version of the R1.

A: Unfortunately we've not been able to see that bike in person. If indeed it's a naked R1 then yes the R1 lowering links should fit.

Dog Bones

Hi I bought a set of adjustable DogBones from you about 2years ago for my wife's K4 sv650 I have just sold it and the new owner didn't want it lowered so he gave me the adjustable Bones back.
My friend has just bought a SFV650 Gladius 2009 and wants to lower it. Will the adjustable SV650 ones fit the SFV650.. By the way you make awesome dogbones :) Kind Regards Steve.

A: If the length of the stock links are the same, the lowering links should fit that bike as well.

ZZR 250 lowering kit.

Just wondering if anyone else has lowered a 2006 ZZR 250? I checked with a Canadian dealer and they told me it is the same as a 2006 Ninja 250. The Ninja kit I bought is not fitting at all. Had to increase the hole for the forks and it needs wider spacers and a longer bolt for the rear bottom link. Has any had the same problem?

A: Unfortunately it sounds like our Ninja 250 items wont work with that application. We will accept your return.

Great service

Hi Folks,
If you've been riding motorcycles for very long you're probably no stranger to poor customer service. the industry seems to be full of folks with lots of enthusiasm and ego but little motivation to much more that gloat about how awesome they are. The good ones really stand out and that's where we (the customers) need to spread the word. I wrote the good folks at Soupy's on a Tuesday evening seeking clarification on an application for a sidestand for my wife's Tiger XC. Wednesday morning I had the answer (Yes, you read that right - they answered their email in a timely manner.....I know what you're thinking but I swear it's true). I promptly placed an order that morning and Friday it was here. Step one complete - the service. What was delivered was what was claimed - a quality product that fit precisely and was a breeze to install. Again, I know - but I'm telling the truth - no filing, no drilling, no assembling, not even a few bad words. Bolt it on and ride. Great service - great stuff. I know it's our expectation every time we log on or dial but these folks do more than just build a website - they deliver in the real world that you and I live and ride in. Five out of Five for Soupy's.

A: Thank you David, we're glad to hear of your appreciation of our service and products.

lowering links problems

I bought a set of lowering link off ebay, they arrived Monday and didn't look right, I've communicating with someone who has been utterly useless answering my questions and need HELP!
The person I've been emailing is in the support department.

A: Sorry to hear of this problem. Our lowering links sometimes look different than stock. If we did by chance send the incorrect parts, we'll send a replacement right away.

CB500X - Installation Too! Thanks!!

I live within a 4-5hr ride from this business, but over the border which causes increased shipping costs, duty etc. I sent an email request on Sunday asking about installation, whether Soupys installs or if there is a nearby shop that they could recommend. Soupys replied this morning (Monday) by email. By 2pm Monday afternoon I have an appointment at D3 (a local shop) for this Saturday to have my lowering links installed on my bike and Soupys will just send the links to D3. Saturday's weather is sunny and 16C and Sunday's is 20C. I am pumped and after snow yesterday, I'm itching to ride! Thank you Soupys for arranging that!!

2016 cbr500r

hi i received the lowering link but looking at my bike i really dont see how your link will allow me to lower my bike a max of 4", i planned on lowering it 2" but at max it looks like i may only be ablevto lower it 1" before the shock hits the lowering link, i havnt installed it yet going to take it to my local shop to do it but wanted to ask you guys to make sure the link will allow me to lower my bike at least 2".

A: It will lower the motorcycle the amount advertised. The clearances are not a direct relation to the amount of lowering. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

lowering link for 2003 Triump Sprint ST?

Hello, I purchased a lowering link for my 2006 BMW K1200GT last year and was very satisfied with it. I am now looking at purchasing a 2003 Triumph Sprint ST, but only if I can get it lowered. On your website you list a kickstand product, but not the lowering link for this year model. I have been doing research to find a lowering solution, and at least one site I ran across seems to indicate that there is a method to lower this particular bike that does not involve a lowering kit. Something about rotating or resetting a stock part of the rear suspension. Is that why you don't offer a lowering link? Can you help me with this?

A: Unfortunately we're not going to be any help, we do not offer a lowering kit for that motorcycle. Thanks for checking in and sorry about that.

Product Review

Ordered late on Friday and package arrived at my door in South Carolina Monday Afternoon! I did not order overnight shipping just USPS with insurance. Still plan on getting everything powder-coated but I test fit it, and everything seemed to fit great and appears to be great quality.

DRZ 400e adjustable side stand/ links kit

Wish all overseas transactions were this smooth. Google lowering kits and its not long before you strike Soupys-web page-follow that up with different forums ,it the same answer-Soupys. My search suggested that many adventure riders lower their bikes only to put them back to stock some time later as their skills or terrain changes .Only one answer then-adjustable links-and side stand. Communication was fast, shipping was fast and no issue shipping to the bottom of the world. Blistering easy trade-Thanks A+++

lowering link

This is an item that makes my bike handle better, easier on tight stuff to. I love this thing but "Loctite all threads" ? if Im adjusting the unit at different times wouldn't all that threadlocker cause problems? Should I just set it and forget it (with Loctite) Whats best?

A: If you're adjusting often, use a product that has a lesser strength. All fasteners on a motorcycle should have some sort of thread tightening.

Lowering Link for Honda XR400


Do you have lowering link for a Honda XR400?



A: Unfortunately we do not, sorry. Thanks for checking in though.
Miranda January 2, 2016 at 2:46 PM


Hi There, I am looking forward to lowering my BMW S1000XR (SE) once your links arrive with me here in the UK in the next few days. What sort of impact will lowering the bike have on my suspension? Will I have to have the suspension re set? I'm planning on lowering the bike 2 inches.

Many thanks, really looking forward to finally being able to feel the road beneath my heels!

A: The impact is determined by the amount that the motorcycle is lowered. At 2 inches lower, there will be minimal change. A slightly stiffer spring setup in the rear might be needed. We suggest riding the motorcycle at different ride height to find the perfect balance for you. Thanks for the business, we appreciate it!

Shipping address different than billing address

Hi, I'd like to order a link and a kickstand for my streetfighter 848. I'd like to have it sent to my parents in Texas rather than in Canada. So my shipping address will differ form my billing payment from paypal. How should I proceed? Thank you, Mélanie

A: When you check out we have separate fields for shipping & billing. We'll be sure to ship to your desired address.

I have just fitted the lowering link I bought from soupy's for my Kawasaki er6F, I was impressed with the quality on the link and kickstand and it all fitted perfectly. I couldn't buy one in Australia so I turned to soupy's.
I can highly recommend this kit, also fitting it has had no impact on the handling of the bike.
Thanks Again.
