Lowering Link 625

What is available in the way of a lowering link for the KTM 625 SXC?

Be prepared for wheel contacting rear fender on jumps. Even small jumps and fast riding became impossible when I put the lowering links on my LC4e.
Maybe if you crank your preload way up, but then the rear is too stiff.

Norm Kouba at Kouba links also sells them. I run one and it helped a bunch.

Sorry, I'm just telling about my experience with the Emig links I bought used on the web. I think they were the more extreme lowering links. Even with my custom 17 " (smaller and more clearance) rear wheel I could no longer ride the bike fast, it would bottom at the slightest provocation.

BTW, my experiences are based on my 170 lbs and 5'7" height and medium aggessive ride style.

Just sit sideways a little and use one foot when stopped.
