For some reason, the CRF 300L and Rally's have really tall seat heights (over 35" and taller than the AFRICA TWIN!?! ), especially for a small displacement beginners bike. So we have some options to get your feet firmly back on the ground.

Built in Boise, IDAHO. Ridden and raced everywhere.

We are pleased to offer lowering links by KOUBA LINK for the Honda CRF 300L and Rally, which lowers the bike 1-3/4" (44.5mm)

Available in Red or Black colors, make your choice below.

Fits both the standard 2021-2024 CRF 300L and the Rally version.

Please be aware: All lowering link alter the rear shock linkage leverage ratio, effectively making the rear shock spring softer. And it's already too soft for most riders as it's set up for a 100 lb beginner rider.  If you ride primarily on the street, it probably won't be that big of a deal, but if you ride off-road on loose surfaces, it will have a tendency to make the bike plow through corners instead of carving corners. The front end will push if that makes sense. 

We generally also recommend that when installing a lowering link that the forks be raised as much as possible without touching the bottom of the handlebars. (assuming no bar risers have been installed).  We do offer lowering seats that don't alter the handling.

We occasionally get further inquiries regarding lowering options and this is our general reply: 

The cons of running a link are due to the geometry change in the suspension. In a nutshell, the bike becomes "choppered out" slightly. So the bike likes to go straight (improves straight-line stability), but when cornering on loose surfaces such as gravel roads or lose dirt, the bikes front end will have a bit more of a tendency to plow or push through corners. This is not noticeable on pavement and a beginner off road rider probably won't push the limits of traction enough to have it be an issue, but if you are an experienced off-road rider, you will most likely notice it.  


In regards to seat comfort, we had to choose a compromise point that had decent comfort and still an effective seat height reduction. If you read through the reviews, you will see a couple of comments about reduced comfort. I generally tell people that you most likely won't notice it riding off-road where you are standing up intermittently, but if you are riding a couple hundred miles of pavement, then its surely to be noticeable.  

Lastly, to simulate the ride height adjustment, find some lumber, bricks or something that you can easily stack up on both sides of the bike that you can rest your feet on that is the same height as the potential drop from the seat and link.  That will give you a pretty good sense of how it will feel after the mods.
