20-25mm Jack-up kit

Hello

I am going for a replacement rear shock. (2017 ZX10R shock) The shock is 20mm shorter, and it lowers the bike 37mm. I want some lowering for my wife, so I am looking for a 20-25mm jack-up kit.

I have ordered and recieve a kit from the German BikefarmMV, but it does not fit. We a discussin this as I write here, they claim it fit, but there is no way to install it. Look at the comparison picture here.

Who produces a 20-25mm jack up kit. I have only found www.mizu.de, but they are kind of expensive. (100EUR)

I may be completely wrong but it looks to me as though the long axis should be vertical so as to in effect increase the length of the shock.

Normally you use a shorter dogbone to raise the rear and it looks like you are trying to extend the dogbone with this linkage

Have you tried it in the vertical direction?

Another forum member made rectangular shaped adapter plates that simply made up the missing distance from the top of the shcko to where it attaches to the bike frame. This would not necessarily solve your desire to lower the bike though

See this picture, on the left is the lowering kit, on the right standard - as you can see the vertical axis drop

s the shock so lowering the bike

I have seen that picture, but the trouble is that the bolt for the shock is 10mm, and the other two 12mm. So the hole on the left on my comparison picture has to go on the shock!

It does not seem to be a very good solution in my book. It would be possible, but you need to do a precise and support on the frame, so the shock would not tilt in the upper mounting bracket!

The same place as the one that does not fit. Their customer service is just not existing.

I see that the distance from the longer end of the plate is not the same to the other holes, could it be possible you need to flip the plate to make the dogbone line up correctly? This is assuming the dogbone is not reaching the bottom hole. I am interested in this mod - as I want to do the same on mine sometime next year. All the best man!!

You can flip it 2 ways. As the 10mm hole has to be connected to the shock. It is still not possible to connect even flipped over

I installed 20mm lowering links with no problem. I lifted the rear wheel of my gsxs 1000f off the ground by a lift that attaches to the swing arm bolt holes. Then I put a floor jack under one side of the swing arm and raised it until it all lined up.

The lowering links I used came from Germany. I bought them in US.
