I ordered the adjustable lowering links for the Glee from Soupy's Performance. The installed very easily and work great. I lowered the bike approx. 1/4" in the rear and dropped the forks through the triple the same amount.

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

2008 Yamaha FZ1 - Had to give up the sport bike style
2004 Suzuki SV650S - Outgrew it
2006 HD XL1200C - Tried but couldn't do the HD thing

I bought a set of adjustable links from Soupy's Performance. Very high quality, raise or lower.

Glee and Wee use the same links.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A is just getting started.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

Murphskits links

Installed a pair of lowering links from Murphskits, $44 (shipped) today. Lower the back of my glee 3/4". I also lowered the front by raising the forks 3/4". Very easy to do.

I have 3/4" Kouba Links on my 2012 Wee... high quality & pretty easy install.
