Suspension/ Dog Bone Info Needed
« on: 01/09/14 05:02PM »
So i got my bike a year ago. The previous owner was a little short and had it lowered with the VORTEX lowering Link. Im trying figure out of i can buy an 08 Dog bone( Link) for my 2010 600rr. Does anyone know what should be done. Im short on cash so im thinking about getting a used one from the 08 600rr. Im trying to raise my Bike back to Stock hight.  Advice please!

Thanks in advance .

I'm no expert on the 600RR, but I poked around the Vortex site and the Honda parts diagrams on CheapCycleParts.com.  The dog bone part number from Honda is the same for 08 and 10.  But the Vortex lowering link is not a dog bone, its the triangular piece that attaches to the dog bone.
So you might want to make sure which part you need to replace.  The triangular piece is also the same part number from Honda for either 08 or 10.

I'm sure either stock piece (dog bone or triangle) is available from a motorcycle junk yard or on Ebay.

Sorry this is late but..

I took your advice and ordered the 2 triangular pieces from ebay. I will be working on my bike some time this week. Ill try to document and take pics but I cant promise a decent right up. More like trial and error.

I would suggest having a service manual handy if you are not too familiar with bikes. Find the right torque specs and retorque to those values. Dont want any of that falling apart while you are in a corner lol.

If you can't find an easy-access service manual, try http://www.scribd.com/ - you can search and see if one has been uploaded for your bike, and read it online free. The fee service allows offline/download and printing of stuff.

I use it for the factory service manual for my bike.

+1 on the service manual, unless you're an experienced mechanic.
