Restoring to original height

Hi all

I want to restore my WR to original factory height. Does anyone have an original linkage lying around they want to sell?

PM me a price to send it to Arizona.

Thanks

Dan

Heidenau k60 what pressures on the GSW?

Hello all

I'm trying a set of the K 60s on my GSW. Yes the oil/cam head size.

I know the K 60s are sensitive to tire pressures. So what pressures are you guys running on a GSW?
