Raise rear suspension 08 WR450F

Recommended Posts

I need to raise the back of my bike a bit. It's too low currently. I don't see how I can get to the rear spring/shock to adjust the tensioner with a spammer wrench or even just a screwdriver and hammer. It's too tight in there. It appears that the previous owner may have installed a mechanism below the swing arm to lower the rear of the bike (in the pictures). Anyone have any suggestions for me? I just need to raise in a couple inches. Thank you.

Thank you Midge. Is it just the one pice that I need in this pic? Will the other two linkages match up to it? Any advice for install to make it easier on me? Special tools etc? Thank you!

Yep thats it - yes it will slot straight in - no special tools just spanners and sockets

put your bike on a stand to take the weight off the shock
