Have you checked out Foresaken link? I prefer it over the Ducshop one I had previously because it does require modification of the shock. Vere nice quality as well.

Yes, torn on that one, folks at Kyle Racing say people have trouble finding the right setup (ride height, valving etc) with that one?

Perhaps thats true. I am just an average rider that only does a few track days so likely i am not good enough to tell the difference.

I have two forsakens one on my street bike and one on my track bike both with different rear shocks. You have to have a shorter link adjuster than most of them out there other than that I've not heard of anyone not being able to set up properly

I forgot to add with the Forsaken there is no need to modify the shock.

That’s great to know. I have the sato adjuster and I think they say that one should work … may go that route after all ….

Sounds like you prefer that link over stock then? Stock shock or TTX or something else?

I have the Sato link and Onlins TTX. Both work great on my 848. Coming from the stock setup where the spring was way too stiff for my dainty weight, this setup has been a revelation. No more pogoing over bumps and much more stability mid corner.

If you haven't purchased the TTX yet I would say first try the link with the proper spring for your weight. That may be good enough. However, removing the shock is such a pain the ass with these bikes that I wouldn't want to do it twice if I decided to indeed upgrade to a TTX.

LOL!!!! I love that setup. When I swapped my shock I didnt even use a ladder,. I only had my car jack under the oil sump and the pitbull stand at the back. I used straps from the rear subframe to support the swingarm as I removed the pivot pin. I am surprised my bike didnt fall over! Good luck!!!!!

I have a Bitubo on my track bike and a stock shock on my street bike and yes the Sato is one of the ones short enough. But even with the TTX no need to modify they eyelet. Not sure I get a lot out of the link on my street bike but it's sexy as hell.
