Yamaha FJR1300 Sport Tour.
(Lowers the rear 7/8th
** Will not
work on the 2014-up FJR1300 "ES" Model
1) Raise the motorcycle with the center
stand, jack, etc., so the rear wheel is just slightly off the ground.
*(The front link mounting bolt may not pass by the center stand when it
is in the down position, so you may need to block up the bike with a jack
or stand.) Remove the two 17 mm socket size nuts and washer from the bolts
that hold the links to the rocker and swing arm. Push both the 12
mm mounting bolts out the left side. You may have to lift up
on the rear wheel slightly to allow the first one to slide out freely.
2) Remove both stock links and you should
be ready to install the new KoubaLinks. Before installing these links,
you may want to put some grease on the needle bearings inside the rocker
and swing arm mounts.
3) Now that the stock links are removed,
install the KoubaLinks in reverse order of the removal of the stock links,
engraving and countersinks go to the outside and only the right one will
read correctly, as both links are identical.
4) After pushing the swing arm end mounting
bolt back in from the left side, you will have to raise the rear wheel/swing
arm up until the lower mounting bolt aligns with the rocker mounting hole,
then push that mounting bolt back in from the left side. Install the flat
washers then the 17 mm socket sized nuts and torque both to approx. 30
5) Depending on which KoubaLinks you
have, determines if and how much the rear is being lowered, so keep in
mind if you lower the rear one inch etc., to maintain the same geometry
(if desired) the front would require approx. the same amount of lowering.
Do not slide the front fork tubes up in the triple clamps more than necessary,
as the fender/tire could come in contact with the bottom of the triple
clamps when fully compressed. Sliding the fork tubes up less than
1/2" is preferred. Lowering the rear more than the front should make
the bike more stable when going strait but will not turn as quickly.
To make it turn quicker (if desired) the forks can be slid up in the triple
clamps and/or by increasing the rear spring preload to raise the rear.

your suspension, please tell everyone, if you do not, please tell us.
