XR100- Does rotating the suspension linkage really lower the bike?

Recommended Posts

I looked at the rear linkage and I can't quite understand how flipping the link will lower the rear end. I bought a 2002 XR100 for my 3 kids for Christmas but I really feel it is too tall for the two younger ones. If I can find an XR80 front wheel and lower the rear by flipping the suspension linkage then all should be good!

This is with an extended swingarm to raise the back of the bike, but it lowered it about 1.75 inches. I am not sure what it would be with a regular swingarm.

Instead of flipping the linkage just buy an xr80 front wheel and back wheel until the kids get a little bigger. I have a set from a late 80's xr80 I would sell you. Complete with axles, brakes, even have tires on them.
