Will a linkage arm lower my bike?

I have an 09 kx 450 that I had a suspension shop set the sag on, but the bike is still a little too tall for me will a linkage arm help lower the bike?

Only if it is longer than the one you have on there now. But if you like the handling now, be prepared to move the forks up in the clamps, which will lower the front end of the bike. Using lower links will:

1. Lowering the back end.

There by making the front higher and the bike harder to turn, if you don't raise the forks.


2. It changes the progression rate of the shock.
