FITTING INSTRUCTIONS updated 16/06
When fitted to the CRF250L the wheel travel will be 240mm (as OEM)
For riders who are comfortable with the ride height on the soft OEM suspension, or equally for riders who may have a short inseam to begin with, we offer our same high-performance 46mm body rear shock in a reduced travel length of 210mm (8 inches).
Once fitted with a correctly sprung shock, the CRF300L/R and CRF250Rally models will result in a 40mm lower static seat height, when compared to our full 250mm travel Level 2 suspension, making the bike far easier to mount and dismount, and retaining a near OEM ride height.
NOTE - CRF250L OWNERS WILL RETAIN THE OEM 240MM WHEEL TRAVEL, BUT OUR STIFFER SPRING WILL INCREASE THE SEAT HEIGHT BY 25-35MM, SO OWNERS CAN FIT A KOUBA LINK IN ORDER TO LOWER THE SEAT HEIGHT BACK TO ORIGINAL (RRP 291).
IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO LOWER BOTH CRF300L & CRF300 RALLY MODELS, FITTED WITH OUR LEVEL 1 SHOCK EVEN MORE, IF REQUIRED, USING A KOUBA LINK (RRP 756).
CRF250 RALLY OWNERS WISHING TO LOWER FURTHER WOULD NEED KOUBA LINK RRP 759.

We feel that our unique 210mm travel ‘Low’ suspension option now offers owners and potential owners of the CRF300L and Rally models a far wider range of opportunities to personalise their machine. The CRF chassis already offers a huge amount of ground clearance, so reducing the travel and seat height by 40mm does not compromise the off-road ability of this bike unduly.
In addition, it makes the machine easier to mount and dismount, and if you plan to carry luggage in more of an adventure travel scenario, you will appreciate the more dynamic stance with a lower centre of gravity.
Similarly for those off-road riders who wish to tackle more extreme and technical terrain, the lower centre of gravity and ease of getting your feet down if needs be, makes the LEVEL 1 suspension option ideal for those looking for a genuine long-distance, fully road-legal, ’trails’ style motorcycle.
Please note that our LEVEL 1 210mm travel CRF shock will reduce the rear height of the bike slightly, and while it is technically possible to fit our LEVEL 1 shock independently of any other modifications, it really is essential to also lower the front of the bike a similar amount to maintain a similar fore-aft geometry. In that regard we would strongly recommend installing our LEVEL 1 (210mm) fork kit - which then offers a properly matched high performance ‘low’ suspension set-up front and rear.
