I have the +1” Burkhart Cycle AL7075 raising links and added a 27mm long preload spacer to the stock fork springs. I have a stock shock with the preload adjuster maxed out. I have removed the Intiminators for now, and have changed the fork oil to Mobil 1 synthetic ATF 75% mixed with Rotella 5w40 synthetic motor oil 25%. My main reason for adding the raisers was to gain some ground clearance for off-road. I didn’t expect much in the way of improved ride quality nor handling. Yesterday I rode about 75 miles of poorly maintained gravel roads, 20 miles of two track (atv) trails, and another 50 miles of pavement. I have to say I am a very happy camper.:thumbup: It just floats over the little stuff but without the bottoming on the bigger hits that was so prevalent with the stock setup. I may play around with more tuning using the Intiminators, but then again maybe not. Like I did for the forks, I think I’ll make up a spring preload spacer for the rear shock so that I can have some adjustment. BTW – I’m 250lbs with gear and the bike has a tankbag, and three 1500 Pelicans cases. While I was at it I removed and greased the shock linkage bearings; there wasn’t much grease in there. When I replace the chain I will do the swingarm bearings.

Possible wrong item sent from Burkhart- Contact info anyone?

Hey folks! New to the forums...

I ordered the 1" raiser links for the DL1000, but upon inspection, they are
exactly the same length and the hole alignment as the stock dog bones
(links).

It appears that they may have sent me the wrong ones. They measure right at 7mm (0.7cm) from end to end.. According to their site, they should measure 2.5cm

This stinks. I tried emailing their "[email protected]", but it came back. There's no number listed on their site, although I did send the same email to their "contact us" form. Before I try to go through PayPal for retribution...

Does anyone have a number for this/these guy(s)?
Thanks
Shawn

The stock links are 140mm between hole centers. 1" raising links should measure around 132-133mm between hole centers. If you mean they are about 7mm shorter than the stockers, that's right on the money. That will result in about a 2.54cm (1 inch) seat height change above the rear axle.
