I love how easy the linkage was to install was really fast and looks amazing on my 2013 kx450f makes the bike seem more stable in the braking bumps and whoops lowers the bike 5mm
Installed this on my 2013 KX450F to help settle it down entering and exiting corners, and it did help in those areas. The bike was calmer in the chop and stayed settled in the corners. Part of that was from raising the forks in the triple clamps, and working more to dial in my suspension. But at the end of the day I think a racer would do himself better to save up a few hundred more and just have his suspension revalved. This is just a poor-man's half measure for the KX. If you really want that beast to do as its told you need to have your suspension set up specifically for you. Now I know...
Easy to install, great looks, fit and finish is excellent. And oh yeah, it improves the handling on the big KX!
Link did help with the handling of my crf but after I had my suspension revalved I was told it was not needed. Most suspension companies recommend using your stock link with a revalve. So if you are only going to run your stock suspension this link dose help your handling mildly but if you are thinking of having any other suspension work done consult them first prior to buying this link otherwise you might be throwing money out the window.
We installed the Link on our 2014 SX250 KTM and it made a great Difference, Bike sits lower in the rear and Truns 100% better on Flat corners.. A+
I put this on a 2011 crf250r and it makes the rear of the bike track better on acceleration and while breaking! It also gives the bike a better overall feel!!! A must have for the hondas and the install was very easy, took 5 minutes and it has all the instructions you need!!
This made my crf handle like it should. I mainly ride in the woods, I had a lot of deflection on rocks and roots. After this link arrive right over everything. The way the bike corners now is the best part. It always felt before like it wanted to fall to the inside. Now I don't have to worry about that. ( giving good conditions of course).
Makes my 450r lower and way better handing to!
Did much research prior to purchase. Wasn't sure if I wanted to go with an engine relocation kit or linkage to get rid of the "dead spot" wiggle on corner entry. Decided to go with the linkage because it also lowered the rear end and I'm not very tall at 5'9". Installation was a five min job. This product really exceeded my expectations. Long fast straits were much more stable and tracked ruts better on corner entry and exit. Slight under steer was noticed compared to stock but Its noting to worry about. I thought this trait was an enhancement but that's a personal decision.
Got my link in three days and very impressed with the quality machining and the anodized green color. Fit was perfect. Made a big difference on the bike keeping it more stable through braking bumps.
Really changed the handling and ride quality on my 2009 CRF 450. Works as advertised. A must have for the 2009-2011 models.
This link is a must have!
I have my suspension revalved and set up for me, but only untell i installed this was i satisfied. Just as good as the pc link and cheaper. Still looks good after about 30 hrs.
My stock link has the needle bearings sealed in there. This one had the bearings all resting at the bottom of the bag it was shipped in so I returned it and got the Pro Circuit Link which is much better quality and no splines falling out.
