So if you look under the bike there is an exra set of holes that look like it is for if you want to lower the linkage. I was wondering if I was the only one that noticed these or if they are for something else?

Thanks. That is my race bike and other expensive hobby. The stryker has two sets of holes for the linkage. Atleast that is what it looks like. The only problem I saw if you were to move it down is that the bottom cross bar for the frame is square and might be in the way for the linkage to move.

Yes there are two holes but the top hole will just lift the bike. You really do not want to mess with the linkages on the Stryker because when or if you want to change to a 240 tire and the increased circumference of the 240 on the stock rim.
We have a replacement spring that works excellent and are working on a install video right now to show you how to change this spring and the benefit of this mod. The kit will cost $200 and it will lower your bike 1.5-2"
Hope that helps.

That is a KTM 450sx. KTM built it to be race ready out of the box so the price tag is a little high but with only a few mods it is pretty awesome. That bike has a nice built motor and is pushing about 62 HP. I have been doing the quad racing thing since 01.

Ok about the lowering question my linkage is bolted to the top set of holes. Should it be set up on the lower set?

Sorry we meant to say the bottom hole will raise the bike. If yours are in the top location then that's the way it should stay. We should have this lowered Spring kit ready in 3 weeks. There's a tool we need to offer with the kit, that needs to be made and changing the spring requires alot of work. More on this later, video coming soon!

I appreciate the help. I guess I will just wait for the kit to come out because I definitely do not want the bike taller.

I think L&M wants to be all over the Stryker before other companies figure it out, just another benefit to being connected to this forum. L&M is stepping it up!! and you guys are gonna be the first with many of these mods. I was able to be in that position a few times on the Raider.

well......I think they are using the raider as a model. They know what guys
want to do to their raiders to mod it and personalize it....therefore, they
know what people are going to want to do to their strykers, eventually, and
are beating everyone to the punch.
