Our reply: Michael, hello. We don't sell springs, and we don't have a preference for a spring manufacturer. As for the YamaLink, if you go with the Short/RACE version for the 2016 WR250F (lowers it half amount of Trail), most at your weight simply reset sag and don't need a heavier spring. But if you went up one spring rate it would be good. If you went for the Long/Trail YamaLink which lowers your 2016 WR250F rear 1.25 inches, then definitely go up at least one spring rate rate, then reset sag. The included instructions are easy to follow and give guidelines for sag and then the front forks.

Our reply: Here is how you get fender eating rear tire situation....
do not reset sag
do not respring for extra leverage
rider is too heavy for stock setup let alone a YamaLink
bike has rear shock that was blown and leaking oil and/or nitrogen to begin with
Any of the 4 mentioned above will make a bike wallow, understeer with or without a YamaLink. The YamaLink's extra leverage exacerbates the stock bike's problems.
Our reply: Hi. On the YZ250FX order page that you placed the purchase it reads "The Trail YamaLink (NOT the RACE link) may require the rider to go up in spring rate if you are on border of needing heavier spring with the stock suspension." You are not on the border at 150 pounds. You simply have to reset sag then dial in the front and clickers per our recommendations and your personal preference.
I believe the Yamalink YZ Link #1 is the better choice for me but since I only weigh 138lbs I barely move the seat down at all when I sit on the bike. I would like a soft ride for my 50 year old bones, what spring is right for me? Where can I buy the right spring from? Is the stock spring close enough? Appreciate any help you can toss my way."
Our reply: Quinn, at 138 pounds I would use the stock spring THEN reset sag, and dial the bike in per the included instructions. Resetting sag is the most important part of any bike setup with or without a YamaLink.
