                           Installation Instructions
                                    Fits: Kawasaki 2000-up KX65 & Suzuki 2003-up RM65.
                                                            (Lowers the rear 2.0")
1)   Before removing the OEM links, take a race sag measurement (amount of vertical 
      movement of the rear axle FROM no weight to bike weight plus rider weight) with 
      rider in full riding gear, standing on the pegs. The race sag recommended by 
      Kawasaki is 3 to 3.25 inches and if the same sag is used with the KoubaLinks they
      will lower the rear 2 inches.  These longer links put more leverage on the rear spring,
      so bear in mind the race sag may need to be reset after the longer Kouba links are 
      installed. Our recommended race sag with the new links is 2.75 to 3 inches for the
      best performance. With our sag recommendations, the rear will not be lowered
      the full 2 inches but will ride smoother on the small stuff and have more travel 
      remaining. 

2)   Raise the motorcycle with a bike stand, milk crate, etc., so the rear wheel is just 
      slightly off the ground.  Remove the 17mm nut (right side) from the forward link 
      mounting bolt and push it out the left side. *You may need to raise the swing arm
      slightly so the bolt will slide out freely. Then remove the nut off the rear link mounting
      bolt (left side) and push it out the right side. Both links will now be off and your ready 
      to install the KoubaLinks.  Some bikes have both the link mounting bolts installed from
      the same side and can see no reason they cannot be installed from either side.

3)  When installing the KoubaLinks, (engraving to the outside and readable from the right 
     side) the left link engraving will read backwards, but both links are identical. Install the
     new links in the reverse order of the removal and torque the link mounting bolt nuts to 
     approx. 40 lbs-ft.

4)  After the links are installed, reset the race sag.  If the links are for lowering purposes 
     ONLY,  sag can be set at 3.25", and will lower the rear of the bike approx. 2.0 inches
     depending on the axle adjustment. If the best performance is desired we recommend
     a race sag setting of 2.75 to 3.0 inches. The easiest way we have found to adjust the 
     rear spring preload is to use a long punch (we use a piece of 1/4" X 12" steel keyway 
     stock, rounded on one end) to loosen the top jam nut from the right side, then grasp 
     the spring at the bottom and turn the spring and the preload nut at the same time. 
     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.

5)  The front forks can be slid up in the triple clamps until they almost contact the handle
     bars, which is a good starting point with the lowering links.  Headshake or turns too 
     quickly?  Move them back down a little, like 1/8" at a time until handling is exceptable. 
     Disclaimer:  Sliding the tubes "up" farther can allow the tire to hit the fender and could
     lock up the front wheel, so be careful out there. 

      If you like what the KoubaLinks do 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 you questions or comments.
