Lowering Link Install and Final Drag Prep

**WARNING: Chassis adjustments can alter the handling characteristics of any machine, and a lowered vehicle is more likely to experience obstacle and/or cornering clearance contact problems.**

WARNING:  Some of the information and performance techniques listed in this video are advanced. Please use discretion when attempting these or any other high-performance modifications. If in doubt, always choose SAFETY FIRST and configure your bike exactly as your manufacturer suggests.

In Episode 9 (Part 5) Brock installs his innovative fully adjustable Brock’s Performance Window Link and explains what items should be considered when lowering a modern streetbike.

Brock then continues on with the ‘details’ and final work required to prepare ‘Gixzilla’ for stock wheelbase drag race competition. The next time you hear from Brock, it will be from the race track, putting the knowledge and component selections for this project to the test under controlled conditions with a timing system accurate to 0.0001.
