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.)Begin by loosening the lug nuts on both front tires. Raise the unit, using a suitable lifting device or procedure, until the front tires are off the ground. If using a floor jack with stands, chock the rear wheels to prevent the unit from rolling. If using jack stands, make sure the stands are placed under the frame and not the body. Make sure the unit is stable and secure . 2.)Remove the tires / wheels. NOTE: Now is a good time to check the threads on the lug studs. Check for rust, pulled threads or other deterioration that could cause a stud/thread failure. 3.) The first thing to do is remove the front cowl and trunk on the bike. You can accomplish this by removing all the bolts (screws) around the perimeter of the cowl and removing some plastic “snap rivets”. To remove the rivets simply pull the center section up and then the rest will follow. 4.)Place a floor jack, or other suitable device, beneath the left side lower control arm. This is to prevent damage to the tie rod or slip yoke boot while disassembling the lower control arm and strut. Using a 14mm socket, remove the two retaining nuts and lock washers on the top of the struts. 5.)Leaning the strut forward toward the headlamp buckets will put the strut in position to allow you to reach over the top and place the strut spacer in place. Install the strut spacer on top of the coil retainer and tightening the nuts. Install the supplied gasket on top of the strut spacer, and re-install the strut assembly
