Isnt there something in the suspension linkage that if you install wrong, it really raises the machine. I thought I saw something in the forums about that recently

No its a stock lt500rk swing arm. A lot different than the lt250r's.

yea it looks like it sits high. is the chain eating threw the chain slider fast?

you shouldn't be able to see the lower shock bolt like you can on yours. did you put those stainless bolts in?

see these 2 pictures. the one of the back end, you can't even see the lower shock mount. and see how mine sits real low from the side?

to fix it you need to rotate the middle piece in the cushion lever. you remove the middle linkage bolt, and move the hole to the top. it will lower the back end alot. there should be a thread about it. alot of people put that in wrong.

To lower it where do I need to put the linkage? closest to the motor or closer to the swing arm?on top or on the bottom? Thank for all the help.

the bolt needs to go in towards the top. it can be put on 2 ways, either at the top(right way) or towards the bottom(wrong way). just pull that middle bolt out of the cushion lever, and use a screwdriver to turn it around. then reinstall the bolt. with the bolt at the top the swingarm will be higher, making the quad sit lower.

picture is the right way.

well if your cheap you can always just flip your rims around. but the best solution would be just to get aftermarket arms. i'm not sure but do they even make aftermarket arms for the zilla?
What can I do to make it wider and better handling. I have a set of works shocks coming in a week or so but I need to make it wider. Any suggestions for a money friendly widening kit? Bump steer kit? Spacers? Off set rims? Tell me what you think guys. Thanks.
Tyler Renner in Arizona (623) 703-7232 makes custom A-arms and swingers for the Zilla...I just ordered a set of +2s and a +4 swinger with a LSR carrier that accepts the thick stock Zilla axle..also DR Q makes a bump steer correction kit for the LT500R as well...I also ordered a set of front and rear Stage 3 Elkas Legacy Pluses which all together should make that Zilla handle like a dream!!...good luck to ya man!!
