may encounter clearance problems when re-installing the saddlebags. Check for a minimum of 5mm. clearance to prevent damage to the saddlebags. Measure clearance in the recessed area in the “backside” of the saddlebags where the shock sits. Check front, back and side clearance. THE BAGS MUST INSTALL WITHOUT UNDO FORCE. If they don’t, they are hitting the shock and/or shock boot. ****************** Inspect the clearance through the full range of motion of the swing arm ******************* n If more clearance is required, three suggested options are as follows: 1. Place washers between the mounting points where the saddlebags attach to the rails. This will move the bag slightly outward and away from the shock body. NOTE: On saddlebags utilizing DZUS FASTENERS (’85-’92), replace these with bolt/nut combination (as on ’93-’94 years). This will allow you to use washers to gain necessary clearance. 2. Remove or slide off the rubber boot that covers the shock shaft and attaches the body of the shock. The boot can be modified and reattached to the shaft (not the body) and secured with nylon ties and/or removed completely. This should gain you a minimum of 3mm of clearance. 3. Slot and/or space the saddlebag “rail/frame cage” mounting holes to allow the entire frame assembly to be moved out slightly from the shock body. You should use this modification only as a last resort n Lower motorcycle and check preload (shock spring stiffness). Adjustment may be necessary to suit personal preference in ride comfort. Read your Harley-Davidson owners manual for procedure. Test Ride.

Secure motorcycle to a bike lift and raise the motorcycle. Rear wheel should remain barely resting on the ground. 2. See diagram on page 2 for references made in parentheses, for example (#5). 3. Remove the nut from the rear suspension bolt (#5) at the bottom of the shock (#7). You may need to remove your exhaust and rear horn to access the nut and bolt. 4. Remove this suspension bolt (#5) from the non-exhaust side of the bike. You may need to raise or lower the bike to ease the tension on the bolt in order for it to come out. 5. Next remove the nut (#4) and bolt connecting the relay arm (#3) to the swingarm. From here remove the entire shock assembly and relay arm from the bike. For ease of re-installing the relay arm (Step 8) and shock be sure to take precautions that in removing the assembly, you can put it back the same way you took it off. Flipping of the relay arm can cause serious damage to the lowering kit and surrounding components. 6. Remove the two suspension arms from the relay arm(#3) and shock(#7). Compare stock arm to length of lowering arm you are about to install. Make sure the length of the lowering arm matches the link of the stock arm. To set how much you want to lower the bike, lengthen the lowering arms. Every 1/4″ longer than stock is approximately 1″ of drop. Do not lower the bike more than 2″ for safety reasons. To adjust, unscrew the large hex shaft from the threaded rods. Make sure to adjust length equally on both shafts. Be sure to tighten all jam nuts once desired lowering position is set. 7. Re-assemble the lowering arms to the top of the shock (#7) using the supplied collar, nut, and bolt. The stock collar (#6), the one in the eyelet at the top of the shock (#7), will need to be removed as it is too long. (This is because the heims are thicker than the stock arms) Do not tighten the nut, or re-install into the frame yet. 8. Re-install the relay arm (#3) to the swingarm. The large hex shafts go to the rear of the bike. This is where it

OPERATION 1. Remove cap from air suspension air valve and connect pump by threading the air valve adapter (1) on the pump as shown in Figure 1. When adapter is threaded properly, the current air pressure in the system will be indicated on the gauge of the pump. Do not exceed maximum air pressure for rear suspension. Air components fill rapidly. Therefore, use low air line pressure. Failure to do so may result in possible damage to components. (00165a) NOTES See the motorcycle’s Owner’s Manual or, if installed, the air suspension lowering kit’s instruction sheet for the recommended air pressures. Using pressures outside the recommended loading range will result in a reduction of available suspension travel and reduced rider comfort. 2. To increase pressure, operate the air pump handle (4) until the desired pressure is indicated on gauge (2). Use caution when bleeding air from the suspension. Moisture combined with lubricant may leak onto the rear wheel, tire and/or brake components and adversely affect traction, which could result in death or serious injury. (00084a) NOTE The pressure release button is designed to release pressure slowly. If the button is completely or rapidly depressed, no air will be released. For the best results, depress the pressure release button slowly and only partially. 3. To decrease pressure, slowly depress the pressure release button (3) on the pump until desired pressure is indicated on gauge (2)

locate the OEM tie rods (circled in yellow, in the picture below), and the rear shock absorber snubber (circled in red, in the picture below). Notice that there is a tie rod on each side of the motorcycle. These tie rods are secured by two long bolts that pass first through the LH tie rod, then through the suspension, and finally held in place by two 17mm nuts on the RH side. Loosen these two 17mm bolts, and prepare them for removal. It helps to raise the rear tire just slightly with a jack or by a helper, to take the load off of these 17mm bolts. Below is another picture, better exposing the orange rubber snubber on the lower shock absorber rod… This is where the snubber spacers are installed, but don’t do it just yet…there’s more info on this later in the instructions. 3. Remove the 17mm nuts from the tie rods, keep the weight off of the rear wheel, and remove the upper and lower bolts from the tie rods. The rods are easily removed at this point. Take notice that the LH rod has recesses in each end, where the heads of the 17mm securing bolts fit. 4. Replace the tie rods with the new Scootworks tie rods in your kit. Install the tie rod with the recessed bolt holes on the LH side, with the recesses facing outward. Re-install the bolts from the LH side, through the LH tie rod, through the suspension, and through the RH tie rod. Secure them with the original nuts, and torque to 43 ft/lbs. The recessed bolt holes in the LH tie rod are seen in the picture of the Scootworks KLR tie rods below… 5. Do not install the plastic snubber spacers at this time. Lower the rear of the bike and remove the frame from the lift or jack stands. The rear lowering is completed. Sit on the motorcycle and determine if you’ve lowered it to a satisfactory level. If not, proceed to step #6. Your Scootworks KLR Lowering Kit is now installed. The following information is supplied as a supplement, to allow you to complete the job of lowering your bike that you’ve begun by using this Quality Scootworks product. NOTE: Be sure to check the chain tension after installation of the lowering kit, and adjust as necessary. Tips for setup and use of your lowering kit BE SURE to read the FAQ at the end of this document, for tips, warnings, and adjustments for your new lowering kit!

1. This lowering method requires replacement rear suspension coupling components. This is a simple task, and is completely reversible. In addition, this kit provides for a 0″ setting, to easily return your bike to its original height. First, raise the rear tire off of the ground by the frame before you begin. Raise the motorcycle so no weight is applied to the rear wheel, allowing the rear wheel to spin freely. 2. Next, become familiar with your lowering kit. You’ll notice that there are two corners of the lowering component with two holes each, and one corner with a single hole. The corner with the single hole attaches to the swingarm (the bolt that is closest to the rear wheel). The only important part of this familiarization process, is to make sure that you get the part oriented in the correct position. The following photos will explain the purpose of the different holes, and also help you turn the part in the correct position before you install it. Look at the first photo on the next page: In the photo above, the part is positioned just as it should be, for installation on the left-hand side (kickstand side) of the motorcycle. A quick measurement will show that Dimension “A” on Side “A” should be shorter than Dimension “B” on Side “B”. If not, flip your part over (turn the face you are viewing away from you, but keep the corners with two holes on your left), and measure again. Next, study the photo below for info on the different heights you can set your bike to… When installed, Hole “0″ will place the bike at it’s original height. Placing the top bolt in Hole 1, and the bottom bolt in Hole 0, the bike will be lowered approximately ¾”. Placing the top bolt in Hole 1, and the bottom bolt in Hole 1, the bike will be lowered approximately 2″. Simple, eh? Now, let’s move on to installation. 3. Below is a photo of the factory suspension coupling as installed in your motorcycle. This photo was taken from the LH side of the bike, to keep things in perspective with our previous photos. Loosen the three bolts holding the original suspension coupling, and remove. Be aware that the rear wheel will drop down when the bolts are removed, just so there are no surprises!

1Place the jack under the motorcycle and raise the rear wheel. Motorcycles with an IMC Lowering Kit should remove the upper shock bolt. This lowers the swingarm allowing better access to the lower footpeg/rear guard bolt. 2Using a 3/16″ allen wrench, remove 5 screws securing the center fairing and remove both halves of the fairing. 3Using a 1/4″ allen wrench remove the screw securing the forward saddlebag mounting bracket. 4 Locate the spacer from the kit (62-239) and fit between the frame and the saddlebag mounting bracket. 5 Clean the threads of the removed screw, apply Blue Loctite 242 to the first 4 threads and refit. Tighten to 29 foot-pounds. Motorcycles without Passenger Foot-pegs 6Remove the plastic caps covering the foot-peg mounting holes on both sides of the frame. 7 IMCRW0195 3 Motorcycles with Passenger Foot-pegs 7From inside the frame and using a ratchet with 3/8″ hex bit and 18″ extension, remove the passenger foot-peg bolts. Discard the allen bolt (see previous page for photo). Left Hand Engine Guard 8Fit the rubber bushing/damper (62-241) to the mounting on the saddlebag bracket. Position the split in the rubber at the bottom. 9Position the LH engine guard (62-235) on the left side of the motorcycle, locating the upper bracket over the rubber bushing/damper on the middle saddlebag mounting bracket. CAUTION: Ensure the split in the rubber bushing/damper is positioned at the bottom when locating the upper bracket

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE 1. Secure motorcycle to a bike lift and raise the motorcycle. 2. Remove stock rear shock from the motorcycle per standard Yamaha shop manual instructions. 3. Place the shaft of the shock in V” blocks and secure this in a vice or press, applying firm pressure to the V” blocks to trap the shaft so it will not turn. Unscrew the upper shock mount eyelet from the shaft. NOTE: The upper mount is a standard thread so you will rotate the mount counter-clockwise to unscrew it. 4. Next, screw the New LA Choppers Shock Mount onto shock shaft using Loctite. 5. Re-install shock spring, making sure it is locked in place with the retaining ring prior to slowly releasing the spring compressor. Allow shock spring to expand against the retaining ring and machined washer. 6. Reinstall shock onto the motorcycle per standard Yamaha shop manual instructions. WARNING: Installing a lowering kit will decrease initial ground clearance. The motorcycle will be lower to the ground and care should be taken to avoid bottoming, especially over bumps or in turns. To maintain proper balanced geometry, the front and rear of the motorcycle should be lowered equally. Failure to properly install the lowering kit and operate the motorcycle after installation may result in serious injury or death to the rider.
