Good phone conversation with a 2008 WR450F YamaLink customer. He weighs 200 pounds withOUT gear. The stock spring for the 08 WR450 is a 5.8kg. At his weight - before a YamaLink - he needs a 5.8kg. And with a YamaLink he needs a 6.2 kg spring in order to achieve proper sag range and balanced handling. Without proper sag and spring rate the Yamaha will bottom, understeer, ride harshly on the small bumps and feel like a chopper. That is why our website and instructions emphasize resetting sag AND being properly resprung for rider weight plus the YamaLink.
