Interesting info, and I just ordered the Storm lowering link for my 04 450f due to my massive 5'4" height, or lack of...anyway, I haven't even ridden it yet. in PA its still snowblowing time, but its too tall for me. anyone here have any info on this set up? I was also going to lower my front by raising the front tubes??? Just thought I'd ask here. Most people use the lowering link for suoer-moto racing. We put the MX link on to raise the rear to help turning. I do not think you will be able to raise the fork tubes enough to make up for how much the link will lower the rear. If you are not riding SM then you may need to have a suspension shop shorten the forks to use the Storm link or run the stock link and shorten the sub frame, then run the forks raised as much as possible.
