How easy are these to fit? I’m reasonably spanner confident but are special tools needed?

Quite easy to fit and no special tools unless you want some thread lock on the adjustable suspension link which I did. Only special tool is a length of wood or lever to put under the rear wheel to raise while removing - reinserting the bolts in the links.

Gentlemen,
Thanks for the good information.
So, on my new 2019 Tiger 1200 XRT, I lowered the front forks by 15MM and installed the Soup's lowering rods approx 30-40MM.
Soup's does not sell the TSAS (shortened rod) and this Tiger rides good like it is in the 'road' mode.
What am I missing and who else can sell the 'shortened TSAS rod' other than Lust Racing?
Can my original TSAS rod be shortened the 6MM as suggested?

Thanks for any help !

You could see if Lust will just sell you the rod or buy a genuine OEM and modify it by cutting and adding a threaded middle section? The trouble you have at present is that the TSAS is trying to compensate for what you have done with the new links as it knows no different.

As I first ordered the kit for the non TSAS bike I called Lust Racing +44 20  8768 1746
 and they immediately could send me the adjustable rod.  :467:
