Curt's 2008 Yamaha WR250R suspension lowering question: stiffer?

Curt's hometown mechanic gave some inaccurate information to him about lowering his WR250 (the R model). Here is our reply: The WR250R YamaLink does NOT make the rear suspension stiffer. The opposite: the extra leverage makes your rear shock more supple which helps the bike get better traction and cornering. No disrespect to the "professionals" you took it to, but they have no idea what they're talking about since they instructed you the end result would be the opposite of what the YamaLink actually does.
