Right now im running a stock rearend with a revalved shock, it works good but i want to get a link/shock later on. I was thinking about pickin up a stock 06 swinger (my bike is 05) and tryin out the LSR dc6 link or the baldwin dual link.

Have any of you guys run theses links and how do they compare to the full JB dual link LT rear end? The baldwin link is more expensive then the LSR, any significant differance?

I rode an 04-05 bike with the older style Baldwin link with a PEP ZPS 8 click 2 seasons ago, and I really like it. The new Baldwin link for the 06-08 bikes is suppose to be a nice piece. But like you mentioned the 400+ price tag is a little hard to swallow.

This year, with my new bike, full Lonestar chassis, 04-05 main frame based, with 04-05 front end because they handle better and 06 rear end setup with the LSR DC-6. Also with a PEP ZPS 8 click. Ive only ridden it a couple times, and it feels really solid. I think I like this bike better. Lonestar has always been really good to me, and they are 100 miles from us as well. I think they spend a little more time in development with the engineers using CAD software to design there parts. The quality of the link is awesome. Although the JB stuff is always on parr with the best.

Heres a pic of the BMS/PEP and then a pic of the DC6 and PEP.

I thought you could see the link better on the old bike.

LSR DC6

Yea i do like that lsr link, i think that and buying someones take of swinger from an 06+ would be the cheapest route to go, plus i noticed a. butler and k. little are running the dc6 link, so it must be workin good

nice bike btw

I run the dc-6 on my 06 and love it. It was either that or the JB set up and I went with the LSR link and PEP arc rear. It has worked great and i think i made the right choice. Plus the cheaper price tag is always nice.

a close friend of mine said "people that think revalves are awesome, just dont ride hard enough"

my friend and I waited till we had the money to go long travel and he ended up getting the Elka dual link and I the LSR Link. we both got Motowoz rears.

I run the JB dual link and its awesome. Its matched with a big Axis that takes most everything very well.

If I had an 06+ though, I'm pretty sure I'd just get the DC-6 with a nice shock. If you don't need to replace the swinger, don't.

you and your "friend" come to some D-10 harescrambles and see how hard we ride
alot of xc racers are selling their high dollar setups and using gt thunder's setup
go to quadzone.com and see for yourself plus I've seen them at the races.
later

probably because they need more clearance and the GT Thunder piston for stock shocks flows better as they say.
