Side to side play with lowering links



Apologies if this has been asked and answered. I could not find it.


Just installed the Rally Raid 20mm lowing links and I noticed that, even when both nuts have been tightened, there is about 1-2mm side to side movement. Meaning if you're on the side of the bike and grab the linkage you can push/pull it 1-2 mm back and forth. Is this normal? I never thought to check the old one before I took it off. There weren't any other parts laying around so I'm guessing it's good.


From left to right the connection is Bolt-left lowering link- linkage - right lowering link- washer- Nut.

I think that is normal.  There has to be a tiny bit of clearance to prevent rubbing and rapid wear.  I'll check mine during the course of this day and report back.
