Default Linear linkage

Hello guys,
I'm building a supertwin for next year from my current k8 road bike. Have a nitron r3 shock on the way and have read about linear linkages to improve handling as well. After doing some research i seen an American guy that made them but has now stopped and they seem to be really rare so was wondering if anyone has any idea of someone who had the knowledge to make one? It was also suggested to me that since guys fit zx6 or zx10 shocks to minitwins that buying a linear linkage off one of them could work, can anyone confirm this for me? Thanks, rob

Default Re: Linear linkage

I've had mine arrive today, payed the same price only been used a handful of times before the bike was sold. Looks a real nice piece of kit. My nitron shock and reworked gsxr 750 forks arrive on monday, any idea if i'll have to change to a softer spring to account for the linkage? I understand that when off the track the bike will be stiff as a board so will need more static sag. Cheers
