Installation Instructions
Fits: 2006-up Aprilia RXV/SXV/450/550. PN APR3
 Lowers Rear 1.75 inches.
*Lowering amounts are measured straite up from the center of the rear axle with the axle/chain adjusters
                                              in the forward part of the adjustment range or as they came from Aprilia.                                         


APR3 link shown above.
1)  Raise the motorcycle with a bike stand, milk crate, etc., so the rear wheel is just slightly off the ground.  Remove the two 19 mm nuts and flat washers that hold the H link to the rocker and the engine cradle and push the bolts out the left side/front mounting bolt first. The kickstand mount needs to be removed before the front link mounting bolt can be removed.  The swing arm may need to be raised slightly to allow the link mounting bolts to  be removed and/or to clear the chain. 

 2) The new links come with only the bearings and seals, so install the center sleeve and the two step washers (flat side out) from your old OEM link into the new link. Install the new link on the bike (rear mounting bolt first) by pushing the mounting bolts in from the left side. You will have to lift the swingarm up 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 59 lbs-ft.   

4)  For the best performance, set the sag (amount of vertical movement of the rear axle FROM no weight to bike weight plus rider weight) at 3.40" with rider in full riding gear, standing on the pegs.  Slide the fork tubes up until they barely clear the bottom of the stock handle bars.  *Do not over torque the triple clamp bolts.  (14 lbs-ft lower, 17 lbs-ft. upper)  If the links are for lowering purposes ONLY, sag can be set at 100mm/ 3.90".  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 nut at the same time.  ** you may need to put some lube on the shock threads to allow the nut to 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.

5)  For additional lowering of the front, the bars can be spaced up by installing a washer of 1/4" max thickness on top of the flanged washer above the top rubber mount on both sides. This will allow  the forks to be slide up farther if you require quicker steering.  *Disclaimer:  Sliding the fork tubes up too far will allow the tire to hit the fender when bottomed, so be careful out there. 

  *Note: The bearings we use in these links are used in the 05-06 Honda CRF450X and are the same ID as the stock Aprilia link, but are 1 mm smaller OD.  Also both of the bearing seals are the same as the 02-up Honda CRF250/450
