Thanks for the added replies, but NO THANKS on any sort of adjustable lowering link. After my bad experience with Soupy's version, I'll stick with solid, no-wiggle pieces. No offense intended! I'm not trying to be rude, and maybe Racerrrx's featured product is better than Soupy's, but the wobble it caused for me was terrifying!

What will a raised rear end do for handling? I don't care about seat height, just handling and safety.

I have not tried the adjustable links myself, just an option for those that worry about flat footing their bikes. Hell, to me it'd be worth $42 just to determine the right length and then fab a solid link from flat stock.

Cool, This sounds like a cheep and easy upgrade that seems well needed on these bikes. I want to go with the GSXR 600 06-09 swap.

So what are some tips and tricks, or list of tools I might need? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

No special tools. The shop manual says to remove a bunch of crap to get to the upper shock mount, but I was able to remove the shock from the mount without doing so- it just took about a hundred eighth-turns of the wrench...

So no drilling? It's just a bolt on swap? That's Awesome!
