650L lowering link

Is the L one of the bikes that seem to 'suffer' with a lowering link? Seem varying degrees of happiness to unhappiness due to changing the suspension geometry on various bikes.

I hear Alpine Stars is coming out with some boots specifically designed for the shorter XRL rider.

Can't address the geometry but it adversely effects the leverage on the shock. Much more preload required to avoid bottoming. When all is said & done you can achieve close to the same height increasing the shock sag & raising the forks some.

I agree. Stiffer spring with less preload accomplishes the same thing as a link without the downside.
