    Ohh ok I see now. Would it work the same way if you was to use a no link swingarm with a longer shock on a stock frame. I like how both my trikes feel with the stock linkage; however, I was curious while I was reading various things in the forum.thanks for taking the time to explain.definately cannot learn that in a book

    That is a no link swingarm with no link shock for factory mount/frame
    no link frame use 2” longer shock for more travel

    Less weight with no link setups, however no links shocks are more difficult to setup and tune correctly. My experience has been no links track better and handle little hits and whoops better. Once they get high into the stroke they tend rebound faster, which can pitch the rear end up. Link setups tend to do better on the big hits. But this is my experience with my shocks and setup. Take it with a grain of salt.

    Best regards
