Installation Instructions
Fits: 2007-up Honda CRF150R/RB  Lowers the rear 1.625" 
 on the "R" model and 1.750" on the "RB". 
* For installed pictures on the "R" model, scroll to the bottom of this page. 


        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 that hold the H link to the rocker and the engine cradle and push the bolts out the left side/front mounting
        bolt first. 

        2)  The new links come with only the bearings and seals, so install the center sleeve from your old OEM link into the bearing
        end of the KoubaLink before you install it on the bike.  Install the new Koubalink on the bike (rear mounting bolt first, 
        grease fitting facing back and down) by pushing the mounting bolts in from the left side. You will have to raise the swingarm
        to align the front mounting holes.

        3)  After installing the KoubaLinks, be sure the 90 degree grease fitting is facing down.  *Left link engraving will be upside
        down and backwards, right side will be readable left to right.  Install the washers/nuts, torque to 32 lbs-ft. 

        4)  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 2.5" to 3.0" (depending on rider preferences) with rider in full riding gear, standing on the pegs.)  The
         easiest way we have found to adjust the rear spring preload is to use a long punch to loosen the top jam nut from the right
         side and grasp the spring at the bottom and turn the spring and the preload nut a turn freely.  Turning the spring/nut 
         "clockwise" increases the preload and decreases the sag.  **Do not forget to tighten the jam nut with the punch after setting
         the sag.  We recommend sliding the fork tubes up in the triple clamps until they almost touch the under side of the
         handlebars.  Sliding the fork tubes up until they barely clear the bottom of the stock bars raises them 5/8th inches on the "R"
         model and 1.4 inches on the "RB" model from the index line on the fork tubes. *Do not over torque the triple clamp pinch 
         bolts after sliding the tubes up.  (14 lbs-ft. lower, 17 lbs-ft. upper.)

         5)  You should now be ready to give it a try, remember, sliding the fork tubes up farther and/or lessening the rear sag 
         quickens the steering and visa versa.

          Disclaimer:  Lowering the rear more than the front can change the geometry and could affect the handling, so be careful
          out there. 

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