I have been trying in England to find a company to make some lowering links (Dogbones) for my Explorer and I am finding grossly overpriced products which are very similar to most monoshock equipped bikes. The same products to fit other bikes are at least a third cheaper. With this in mind I have done some research and for non TUV Dogbones or TUV approved for more money, there is a company in Germany who ship worldwide and will make components to specific spec.

Have a look at this company,

I may as well do it, as I'm gonna get blamed for it anyway.

I know someone who makes dogbones in stainless, i can have a word with him if you`re still wanting some?

Do you know measurements of what you want?

I got a set of link plates for the Roadie before they were generally available. Guy who was on the 1050 forum, Mike from Wales, nice job 316 laser cut. I know he was doing the same for the 800 & XC when they came out, wouldn't be surprised if he's doing Explorer sets as well, I'll try and find his contact details when I'm free.

Other than him, Lust Racing would be my next choice, they have a good reputation if a bit pricier.

Thanks for the info guys, got some coming from Germany cheaper than I could make them!
Lust racing not replying to my emails questioning the additional cost for Explorer, never mind only wanted 6 sets.
Very impressed with the TEX so far and Triumph very good for the recalls.

It looked so sorry for itself, rejected and covered up in the corner of a garage, I just had to put it out of its misery and bring it home for a better life. It has felt so much better and has certainly come to life, wanting to go out the whole time!!    :thumbsup
