Our Suzuki link stiffens the initial part of the stroke for better control which allows the shock to stay linear longer before getting into the high speed circuit that makes it feel harsh. This translates into a better handling bike on straights, in the whoops as well as in the turns. It also keeps the back end planted in breaking bumps. The Ride Link lowers the bike 7mm. Recommended sag with the Rideng Link is 102-104mm.
