lowering link / koubalink

Hi. I'm looking for a lowering link for one of my tour stock 690's.

Anybody got one?

Chris at Terry's Auto Clinic in George had my rear link extended by a short length and dropped the clamps about 10mm on the front forks. The bike is a little bit lower and the handling has not changed. I think the whole lot cost about R800,00 so he was a bit cheaper than getting the new link mentioned by Dwerg.
Clinicians can contact the clinicians' hotline number on 0800 111 131 (for doctors only); and, in addition to 0800 029 999, the public can also contact the public hotline number on 0800 111 132. These lines all operate 24 hours a day.

I bought one and only used it for a short while, plan was to lower it for my wife but she never got comfortable on the 690.  PM me, maybe we can work something out?

If Wild Wood doesn't want it I may be interested.
