I dont have one but I read that that linkage does not lower the bike hardly at all, maybe 1/2 inch at the most. What that linkage does is change the rising rate of progressiveness of the rr suspension. If you're looking for a linkage to mainly lower the bike, then Kouba link is the one to look into. They can lower the bike by 1-1.5", but the rising rate of progression at the rear will be greatly diminished.

There were posts on the CRF450r forum that mentioned improvements on the GEN4 frame w the FC/PC linkage, but not so much, or none , on the GEN 3 frame, which is that of ours. THe conclusion is the Gen 3 frame is a larger chassis vs. the Gen 4, which translate to Gen3 no benefit w/ the linkage vs. the Gen 4 frame.
