Conventional leading links still utilize the ball joint to connect the telelever to the lower fork bridge. Even though the telelever becomes a non-moving part, the ball joint connection is still prone to metal fatigue failure from the flexing of the forks both fore/aft and side/side. Freedom Sidecars in Pennsylvania reports that they are currently working on a LL design for the GS that does not use the telelever. There is a discussion of this in Hacks right now.
