Installation Instructions
Fits:  Honda 2017-up CRF250RL & CRF250RLA   PN: CRF250L-2 Rally  (Lowers the rear 1 1/2") 
Replaces stock link assembly  PN 52475-KZZ-J00 

CRF50L-2 Rally link shown above. 
1)   Raise the motorcycle with a bike stand, milk crate, etc., so the rear wheel is slightly off the ground.  Remove the 17 mm nuts from the two link mounting bolts and push the bolts out the right side.  The swingarm may need to be raised slightly to allow the bolts to slide out freely.  After removing these two bolts the link will drop out the bottom and your about ready to install the new link.

2)   The new links come with the bearings and seals, so put a little grease on the two needle bearings first, and then install the "center sleeve" from your old OEM link into the KoubaLink.  You are now ready to install the new link by holding it back in place with the bearing end forward and the engraving readable from the right side.  After aligning the link eyes with the link mounts, push the mounting bolts back through from the right side. You will need to raise the swingarm to get the eyes to line up. 

3)  After installing the KoubaLink, be sure the grease fitting is facing downward. *Left side engraving will be upsidedown.  You may want to pump a little grease into the grease fitting now before you torque the mounting bolt nuts as sometimes after tightening the nuts the air will not escape from the bearings and is difficult to get the grease in.  Install the two 17 mm nuts and torque to approx. 35 lb-ft. 

4)  For the 1.50" rear lowering, set the race sag (amount of vertical movement of the rear axle FROM no weight to bike weight plus rider weight) at 3.75" with rider in full riding gear, standing on the pegs.  This sag adjustment can be changed by turning the two large nuts on top of the rear spring.  (More preload = less sag, and less preload = more sag. Turning the spring preload nuts clockwise will increase the preload/lessen the sag and visa versa.)  The easiest way we have found to change the preload adjustment is to loosen the top jam nut, lube the threads on the shock and turn the spring and all by grasping the bottom of the spring.  It will turn easier if the rear wheel is off the ground. 

5)  The front fork tubes can be slid up in the triple clamps until they almost touch the stock handlebars, we do not recommend going farther than the stock height handlebars allow as we are not sure exactly when the front tire would be allowed to contact the underside of the fender when fully compressed.  :-(    If the front pushes or will not turn quick enough we recommend lessening the rear sag rather than sliding the fork tubes up farther.   Disclaimer:  Lowering the rear more than the front can change the geometry and could affect the handling, so be careful out there.

*** Side stand Information.  *** Shorter side stands are available for the CRF250L-Rally from CRF's Only at:  https://www.crfsonly.com/catalog/index.php

Now, here is info that YOU need to be informed of, for general knowledge, as to how it relates to the 2017 RALLY.

Honda, in all their wisdom (ha ha ha) has made the side stand for the RALLY 1.5" longer than what is on the 2017 CRF250-L.   That is a fact, and precise measurement.

Yet, the RALLY is NOT 1.5" taller than the "normal" CRF250-L.  It is 0.9" taller.

I have found, and others have agreed, that the side stand on the 2017 RALLY is TOO tall for this bike.

Now, I have fixed that issue on my bike, as I ordered and installed a side stand from a 2017 CRF250-L.....again...that is 1.5" shorter than the RALLY side stand, and then I added a 3/16" thick larger foot plate onto the bottom of the new side stand, to support the bike better in sand and dirt.

With the new RALLY KoubaLink on my bike, the changed out side stand and new KoubaLink work great in concert with one another.

HOWEVER.....here is what YOU need to be informed of.....if a RALLY owner installs your new RALLY KoubaLInk onto their 2017 Rally, and still uses the OEM side stand, they most likely will have a problem with the bike pogo(ing), as the side stand that is already TOO long will really be noticeable now, with the bike lowered 1.5".

I have brought the issue of the TOO tall side stand to Honda's attention, but as you know, sometimes that goes in one ear and out the other when dealing with Mother Honda.

Thanks Miles, 
Tenino, WA.
