Raising Links

Post  Bill & Ted on Fri 23 Mar 2018, 5:52 pm

Fitted some 20mm raising links from the UK that I found on eBay and I have to say what an improvement both in smoothness over bumps and in handling, it now will hold a line like its on rails on long sweeping corners. Very Happy
Tried it out up in the Alpine roads and had a great time, also have found no stability issues at speed.
A good investment for $40

This would have to be the cheapest improvement for the Bandit. It really transforms the handling ……….

If you go much over 20mm you lose the use of the center stand thats why I did quite a bit of research into raising links before going with 20mm.

If you have it too high and you have a Yoshi pipe the centre stand bracket will foul on the swingarm at full extension. Just a word of warning

Well I guess you could weld on some extra "feet" to each side of the centre stand if that was a concern
