I posted the following on the other board.
Can anyone help me out on this?

Hey Drumbeater,

A friend and I tried to install links on my DL1000 last night and we were not successful.
I do not have a centrestand yet. (it is on order)

Had to try to jack the bike up with a small post jack under the frame.

Removed the nuts and tried to remove the two bolts.
One could be removed.
The other bolt would not clear the left side exhaust pipe.

Looked at the bike for a long time and we think that to do it with the jack we were using we would have to remove the exhaust.
Too much work last night, so we bolted the stock links back together.
I really want to install the links, but it sure would be nice not to have to remove the exhaust.

How did your install go?

Maybe the centrestand raises the bike enough so that the link bolts clear?

I finally got the links installed.
Just had to lift the rear wheel up so the bolt could be removed.

Lower seat height is awesome.
Front fork also lowered.
Handling stable and sure.
3/4" lower front and rear. :D :D
