I bought my wife a new CBR500R this past Saturday. She is 4' 11" so I went ahead and ordered lowering links at the same time. They came in today. Installation was pretty easy. I strapped the bike from the top of tripple tree on each side and from the rear passenger pegs to the walls in my storage shed. Jacked it up with a floor jack and a small block of wood under the engine. The front wheel came up first so I used a rubber mallet under the rear tire to rock the weight back to the front tire. Removed the 3 bolts from the stock links and installed the Vortex links with the bolts snug. Set it back on the ground and tightened the bolts. Kickstand is a little on the long side now
Which Vortex links did you get?
