Raised my DL650 1" with the shorter links off EBay
I felt that the DL650 was a bit short for my legs and I also wanted a little more room between rocks and the engine guard. I found the raising links on EBay and ordered a pair.
The installation was very easy with the center stand and I didn't have to remove the rear wheel to complete the change. I would suggest some sort of a lever set-up so you can raise the rear wheel/swing arm up slightly to align the bolts. Don't forget the Blue Loc-tite on the bolts when you're done.
I love the way the bike feels with this change - better handling and stance just as if you lowered the front. I have seen the caution that you do not want to run the higher rear with a lowered front. The front suspension height should be returned to stock with the higher rear.
