Yoshimura Suspension Linkage Kit for Yamaha R7

OEM linkage is designed for street and 2-up riding, low ratio and high progression. Engineering the Yamaha R7 to be more stable at higher speeds for racing is crucial, so a world-renowned suspension/chassis engineer was enlisted to improve the R7.

The suspension link system works by modifying the linkage ratio and progression with a higher ratio and adds more linear progression. This set up is designed to work well with the stock OEM R7 front end.

The link is designed for enthusiast track days and professional racing. When combined with the Yoshimura Swingarm Pivot Kit part #400BG137200, benefits mentioned above can be maximized even further.

Yoshimura Swingarm Pivot Kit for Yamaha R7

Optimizing the Yamaha R7's chassis for the increased speeds and lean angles of racing is extremely important. The Swingarm Pivot Kit gets the R7 pointed in the right direction and helps keep it there to increase rider confidence through turns.

By flipping the two pivot inserts the racers can increase or decrease by 1.5 millimeters. This change makes the R7 feel like the podium contender it is. When combined with the Suspension Link part #400BG137200, the two components further enhance the handling of the R7.
