KLR lowering links and stand

Anybody have any lowering links and a side stand for my 06 KLR they are willing to sell. My legs are just to short.

After doing a little research after I posted, I think I am going to leave the stock links in. Sounds like a lot of peoe have had problems with bottoming out and other issues after the lowering links were installed.

seat

your better off changing your seat thickness.

its not just bottoming out you need to be worried about. lowering it also changes the fulcrum of the rear swing arm.
