Raising Links for the KLR650E from Eagle Mike.
The links can be changed easily with standard KLR650 maintenance tools and a small lift, jack, or sling, in as little as 10 minutes. While you're at it, this is a good time to pull apart your entire rear suspension and lube everything.
RL-1 links are the original links, for riders 250 lbs or more. They were very successful in this weight category, but the links were too much for 200 lb. riders...
RL-2 links were developed for the rider in the 200-250 lb. range.
There is some overlap of these categories, as suspension setup and feel (ride characteristics) are unique to each rider... a lighter rider who always carries a load, for instance might prefer the heavier links. If you order one size and find you need the other, the manufacturer offers a lifetime exchange.

My original links are much thinner than these 1/2" thick ones, is the original hardware supposed to work?
Please give it a try, they will work.
