This link (now available in both orange and black anodized finish) adds ten millimeters of rear ride height to your Gen-3 1290 Super Duke R.  In addition to adding rear ride height this link also creates the following changes:

  • Increases swingarm angle from -11.57 to -12.13.   
  • Decreases progressive nature of spring from 11.8% to 10.2%.
  • Increases free hang anti-squat from 108% to 110.3%
  • Decreases Trail from 107.7mm to 105.5mm

The result of these changes to all of these numbers results in improved feel through turns.  More confidence.   The bike will hold a line better, drive out of turns better without going wide.   More anti-squat, created by better swingarm angle, will help drive the tire into the pavement more on acceleration giving you increased traction.  The decrease in progression will create a more consistent feel by cutting down on the drastic difference in the stock bike's reaction to suspension travel - when comparing initial travel to extreme travel.

For reference we run our SDR in full race setup with almost 30mm more rear ride height than stock.   Also in some configurations of sprocket combinations you can lose up to 9mm of ride height just by changing gearing - because of the eccentric position necessary to adjust proper chain tension.  So in cases like these, by adding this 10mm link you would actually still be 1mm LOWER than stock.  This is why we also make +15 and +20mm links (see below).

Its legit.

I never would’ve guessed something so small would make such a big difference.

I bought the 10mm link and my first impression is “holy shit”

Installation took less than five minutes.
And the difference was noticeable immediately.

I didn’t think my bike handled terribly to begin with, but it definitely handles better now.
plus it hooks up harder, and with much less squat.

When it’s time to lean into the curves, the bike feels lighter and smaller than it actually is, and falls into the curves more easily and naturally

Holds a line better through the curves, even while accelerating.

I recommend this kit to anyone who wants their superduke to be more agile, and even more aggressive than stock.
Without a doubt, the biggest improvement in handling that can be made , for the least amount of money.
Its unbelievable, but actually true.
