The Plus 15 Sport Link adds 15 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 -12.33.   
  • Decreases progressive nature of spring from 11.8% to 9.35%.
  • Increases free hang anti-squat from 108% to 112.7%
  • Decreases Trail from 107.7mm to 104.35mm

These changes create 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.  So in cases like these, by adding this 15mm link you would only be raising your seat height 7.5mm higher than stock. 

Depending on your sprocket choices, sometimes using a +20 could give you more ride height than you prefer.  So with the new +15, or the original +10 and +20 Sport Links, now you are covered to run any gearing you want, and still have a Sport Link that works for your preferences.

Eric the Magic Man

Hi Eric, I just wanted to say thank you for creating the sport link. Install it yesterday and rode the bike! What you say is true !
Here’s my story- I was late but always wanted the superduke gen 3. saw the beast at ktm dealer - ( Singapore )too bad no test ride ! nonsense law or whatsoever ! So decided to get one after so much review about the bike. ( most of the reviews I saw it on YouTube ) with original set up ! review on you tube was a big wooh wow u huh bike feels so good ! Naaah I think they are fake with the reviews or just something ! Anyway - After sometime riding the bike, I had a hard time getting to understand the bike for almost two month!! I’m from Singapore btw and Many of the seasons rider here say it was the suspension set up ! So I Thought to myself maybe it’s was a suspension set up issue. Long short story, I try fiddling around with the front and rear suspension From damping- rebound -preload sets many times . It just not doing the feeling I want sometimes is worse ! ( I’m not a racer I’m just a normal street rider ) I
Anyway I saw you on you tube - got the +15 sport link from you -after installing the sport link , straight away test rode it few times and until now all I want to say my bike handle way way way better and feel agile too ( you’re a magic man Eric ) few CM makes a lot of difference to the bike and it works ! Again Eric I salute you and your dedication and effort to get the bike better for other user. Thank you Magic Man

One of the best modifications I’ve done to the bike. Amazing what it does really. Had the bikes suspension set up properly aswell so it all helps.

Amazing!

I came off a 2018 RSV4 that had suspension dialed in for my riding style by a suspension shop. That bike had amazing front end feel and stability. When I first got my 2023 Superduke R Evo, I wasn’t impressed with the bike because it was such an odd feeling to ride. Stiff chassis but no feedback from the suspension or tires. I had no idea how much grip was available.
I found GoGo’s channel on Youtube and after watching many videos, I got the +15mm sportlinks. I reached out to him with an email and he advised me to get my suspension set up by a shop although it is an electronic suspension.

Last week, I got to test out the bike with and without the sportlinks with my new suspension set up. With the static damping settings, it was unreal how much of a difference these two orange doritos made in acceleration, mid corner stability, and corner exit. Acceleration is now just forward momentum and it holds such a crisp line. Also, dare i say that the front end feedback and grip feels better than the RSV4.

With the sportlinks on, I now love the feel and handling of the Superduke. I still wish I had the non-Evo but it is what it is. I’ll definitely be saving up to get the superclamps in the future to dial in the front end ;)
