2009 / 2010 R6 owners (maybe 08 also?)... need dimension of stock links...

I just upgraded to a 2010 R6. The bike has lowering links on the back (was female owned). The work was done by the dealer so she didn't get the stock parts back.

From what I can see, it has the stock "dogbone" but the parts on either side of it (links?) are the aftermarket adjustable links with spherical ends on each side. I've been looking for some stock links but haven't come up with anything yet.

Can someone measure the length from center to center of their stock 2009/2010 link? It's an easy measurement with a tape measure from bolt center to bolt center. I can try to find a pic and post it up for reference if necessary. Maybe I'll get lucky and the adjustable links I have will adjust to stock length. If so, then all I need to do is adjust the forks and I'm good to go.

Let me know if you can help.

Actually, it appears as if the links are the same from 2006-2010. There are plenty of 2006, 2007, and 2008 models running around so someone please take a moment to get the measurement for me. Thanks!

Thanks. That part on mine is still stock. I need the length of the side links.

These are what stockers look like (what I'm wanting dims of)... http://www.r6-forum.com/forums/showp...5&postcount=22

These are similar to what I have on the bike currently... http://www.ebay.com/itm/2006-2010-Ya...#ht_1005wt_922

Thanks

If the links are the same (check the fiche) 06-10, which the aftermarkets seems to be. I'll measure mine Saturday when I'm track prepping.

I have an 06 stock height. I do not keep the bike at my loft complex though, hence wait till Saturday.
