Don's 2010 Yamaha YZ450F suspension link question

One of the riders is a fast intermediate at 250 pounds and the other is a fast Expert at 190 pounds. Both have 2010 YZ450F's. Whatever input you can offer is appreciated.
Cheers, Don

Our reply: A 250 pounder is waaaay too heavy for the stock spring. A 6.4 or closest is
recommended. With the YamaLink the 190 pounder may be able to get away with the stock
spring after he resets sag and turns in high speed compression in 1/4 turn
increments. Many 190 pounders also go to a 5.9 or closest spring.

Breanna's 2001 YZ250 lowering link question

Im 5'4" and 130lbs ive been riding my 2001 yz250 for about a year now and decided i wanted to lower it. Any suggestions for sag and i believe im at a 4.6kg spring what would you reccomend? im excited to receive your product itll help at the starting gate having both feet on the ground!

Our reply: Stock was a 4.8 and without a YamaLink a 4.3 or 4.4 is recommended.

Keep your 4.6 spring on, install the YamaLink and reset sag. Our
instructions are super easy to follow and offer a few setup options. If you
have the stock 4.8 that is a good option to have, but try what you have on
