      This new concept in protection guards the shock clevis and shock linkage from rock damage and enables the bike to glide over logs and boulders. Without the Mule Link Guard the shock clevis will catch on logs and stop the bike or throw the rider forward. Because the clevis and linkage extends well below the swingarm, it is very susceptible to expensive damage.
    • Prevents expensive damage to the shock clevis and linkage.
    • Allows bike to glide over logs & boulders.
      Toughest link guard available.
    • CNC machined of durable and lightweight 6061 T6 billet aluminum.
    • Quick and easy installation.
    • Mounting hardware included.

    Amazing protection for your linkage, I wouldn't without this on my bike!
    We bash over logs and rocks all the time and I've beat up my Bullet Proof Designs Linkage Guard but my linkage still looks like it just came off the showroom floor!

    Charge steep downhills without worrying about clipping boulders
    Peace of mind when crossing rock garden trails. If you need to go over a bolder smaller than your bikes wheel base this sturdy brace can hold the weight of the bike and save you linkage.

    Linkage guard
    This guard is great
    I would hate to think of the damage to my linkage without it.
    I have black set but now aluminium shows at front due to wear.

    Looks great but traps water/dirt against linkage
    This product is excellent quality, just like everything else BPD makes, but the design is a little off in my opinion.
    First thing is impact deflection; This guard does little to change the angle of impact of anything you may be riding over, and since it is hard aluminum that is bolted directly to your shock, it transfers that impact straight to it.
    My second main complaint, is that is hols water and dirt against the bottom of your shock. I have taken it off a few times to lube linkage and each time it is packed full of dirt.
    I have taken it off and just ordered an Obie link guard. the design looks much simpler its half the price.

    Acerbis knows handguards.
    These are the best flag mounts on the market.

    Excellent product
    Installation was fairly easy. The concept is really good and function is superb. I have had it on my bike for a couple months and it shows some minor signs of abuse so I know it is doing it's job well. If you ride anywhere over and around rocks and boulders this is for you. The guard is a little expensive but much cheaper than replacing damaged suspension linkage over and over again.
