The current YZF chassis generations have linkage rates that require stiff spring rates; unfortunately this is less than optimum for the rear shock, stiffer spring rates require high damping rates, the Merge knuckle reduces spring rates and allows the whole motorcycle to reach its full potential.
Many aftermarket companies offer a longer drag link. This delays the stock curve, making the top of the stroke feel more compliant; however it softens the shock through the entire stroke and decreases the steering head angle, which is undesirable.
After many hours testing, Merge presents you with the solution. The Merge Link Knuckle creates a completely new progression curve that stabilizes the rear suspension and improves the steering geometry.
This product enhances handling with stock shock and units with modified damping.
