I've been researching lowering links lately for my 2009. There seems to be a lot of positive reviews & info out there. I found a guy w/ a used one for $100 that I'm purchasing this weekend. I was just curious to the guys that run them, how is it? My bike is valved for the woods & sprung for my weight. I'm 200#, 5'10". I ride/race in the woods & I could stand for the rear end to loose an inch or so. The rear spring is actually a little stiffer for my weight per the RT chart. I read that when you install a Yamalink you need to adjust the sag & get a 20% stiffer rear shock, so if that's correct, my coil will be perfect for it. I'll just need to adjust the sag. With all that being said, did you guys notice the difference in cornering, handling & the front end feel? Does it feel to short or is an inch not that noticeable unless your putting your feet down on a steep rocky hill? Is there anything special I should about set up or riding style after I install it? Thanks for any feedback!
