How can I support the bike to try and move it to the first hole?? Will a rear stand and a small jack do it?

Check the geometry of the spring seat. Most bikes have a reverse seat. Meaning, shorten the dogbone size the tail lifts. That being the case and you're on the furthest link, move the bolt to the closest. Otherwise yes, a stock height dogbone or fully adjustable, on-bike links can be used.

Either use a rear stand w a jack or a lift(for those of us fortunate to be in a shop) or can even do it on the sidestand w help from a second pair of hands if necessary.

Remember to readjust the chain, headlight aim and dont forget to correct the front fork alignment to be equal to the rear change to not upset the geometry.

the dog bones are the links right??

then you should be able to bring it back up...

The last links I had on the SV650 were able to go from 4" down to stock.. take a picture and post it, then we'll see....

Its real easy if you can suspend the rear and front. Im lucky I have open rafters in my garage. It makes this job real easy.

I've done this to lower and raise my bike with lowering links:
it requires two people. one person needs to tilt the bike and balance it on the kickstand,
the other person gets up under the bike and makes the changes as needed.



whatever you do, dont lay it in the grass on it's side and do it

when i bought my zx6r it was lowered front and back and Motorcycles Unlimited fixed mine for me. you'll need a regular sized kickstand and the links of course. make sure you get your suspension setup to your weight also
