intresting topic on linkage plates - one for the techies.

Heres a very interesting topic over on the daytona forums. The bloke who developed the linkage plates is a friend of mine ,quite cluey and can seriously ride.

I have always wondered if the zx10's would benefit from something like this. specially the first generation of the zx10's with that rear shock. Ive heard the dog bone lengths are a bit wrong. anyone throw more light on this :).

Interesting especially since I have swapped so many suspension parts onto my bike. My current setup is an 08 arm with 08 shock linked with 05 6r bones all on an 06 10r. I have only rode it once on a cool day so I do not have a good judgement yet on the handeling characteristics but it felt good on the street.

Really? Rectified with a longer swingarm? What swingarm is that? I don't know, I haven't heard of anybody complaining of any suspension issues. I did a swingarm swap purely for looks
