Machined from billet 6061 T6 Aluminium, the X Link shock guard is sure to keep your rear shock safe from the toughest of elements. With the age of extreme enduro upon us, it is not un common to be smashing over logs, boulders, concrete and other tough obstacles. The linkage, rocker and rear shock clevis are extremely vulnerable and prone to damage in these situations. Made as a direct replacement to stock, simply remove your old standard linkage and install the X Link. The X Link comes with pre installed bearings and seals so it goes straight in to get you back on the track faster. The link also provides a smooth transition between the skid plate and the back wheel to make your bike glide straight over obstacles and not get hung up on the hanging linkage. Protect your investment.
