The rear end of the KTM can be lowered about 1 1/2" by rotating the rear axle eccentric to bring the axle to the top of the swingarm. The grease nipple disappears round front but this is no worries. Definitely helps in getting the tail lower.

my buddy is making skids for them after the carrier has been rotated, they tuck up in there and you have all kinds of ground clearance then.

Just turn it around, pretty simple really, tried it this weekend, works awesome, seems to take alot of the unwanted roll out of the bike.

nvm guys, it was really easy lol, you just loosen the carrier with the 4 bolts, then use a hook wrench and rotate it down
