Use the same links.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

i had a pair that was supposed to lower the bike 1 inche. They were sold for previous V-Strom.
While changing them i compared the lenght of them with stock one.
New one are only 3.2mm longer (1/8").
I forgot to measure the bike before, but i guess it is now about 3/8" lower.
Pat i think you lowered your 3/4", did you noticed how much longer the new links were over the stock one? Or anyone else?

Each mm over the stock 140mm lowers the bike about 2.8mm for any year.
