I am a cnc programmer. If there is enough demand for a certain size linkage i can make a few sets of them for alot less than mss price. They would be from the same spec alloy and identical sizes. If there is demand let me know. Its no use making 1 set. If you have a batch then price gets cheaper

Right guys im in the process of trying to fit a gen5 shock to a gen4.
Reason being im on a budget lol.
My bike is stripped and im awaiting the gen5 in the post.
1st problem is the links are vastly different.
This isnt a problem if i know what ratio i need to make the conversion work.
I can make any links at my work so what i need to know is what dimensions do i need?
Any ideas or advice please?
I was worried to read the gen5 has a softer spring.
Shall i fit gen4 spring on the gen5 shock?

If you're adding a gen5 shock to your gen4, then it would make sense to add gen5 links as well.

So if i make a set of links the same as gen5 then it should work like a gen5 execpt the swingarm is a tad shorter so it should be slightly harder ride?

Gen5 Shock matches with gen5 links. Even though you have access to machines to make your own links and dog bone, why go through the design, programming and setups when you can buy everything for £150. And if you cut your own you still have to source inner parts for the dog bone.

Just seems like a lot of work unless you plan to make a batch.

Its not that hard when you got machines to hand. I can program these in no time and i got the alloy in stock

As ive said somewhere on here before if there us enough demand i can produce a batch of them but i gotta get them right first time so id need to know exactly what sizes to produce some. Downside for most is im in the uk. Right near mss as it happens
