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.
Will these links fit on a 91 KLR 650?
They will not work on a 91 KLR to raise it. If you have too much SAG you will need to change the spring.
this may sem stupid, but im not smart and a little paranoid, ading one to my cart means the pair is shipped right? i dont want to be that idiot that orders links then suddenly gets them and only has one, id rather be that idiot that has to ask.
The links are sold as pairs.
