Our reply: "Eric. No change to the fork springs are required. You will need a heavier rear spring without a YamaLink because at 170 without gear you are a little over the factory stock spring sag range. The stock spring is a 4.7kg."

Our reply: We make two versions of the 2015 YZ125 YamaLink. Version #1 lowers the YZ rear more and requires resetting sag and being properly resprung for the extra leverage. Version #2 just needs sag readjusted a few millimeters in comparison due to less leverage. Version #1: Click to the LINK Version #2: Click for the other LINK

I was going to get an softer rear spring and see what the forks felt like before I messed with it. My understanding is that the yamalink along with the seat lowering will also reduce spring rate. I am thinking with this link I can get the benefits of a lower seat height plus possibly put the rear spring range for my weight. What is your thoughts and opinion? Trail link or race link?"
Our reply: "Based on what you wrote I'd go for the Trail YamaLink for the YZ250FX."
We replied "We made the #2 specifically for riders like your son. Yes, the #1 lowers the bike more (1.5") which is great especially on the start line (most use blocks anyway), but we made the #2 for my nephew who at the time was 100 pounds and about 5'4", but he was insanely fast coming off a super mini. The #2 only lowers the rear about 1/2" but the YZ handled so much better especially when the tracks got rougher and/or second moto. So it's not a true lowering link; that's why we call it the RACE YamaLink. Today we sell the #2 to tall YZ racers not just the slightly height impaired.
If you would've said your son was a casual beginner off-road rider and NEVER raced MX we'd go #1. But an aggressive in shape fast kid always chooses the short travel YamaLink aka #2."
And our reply: "We read your email twice and all agree the Race YamaLink is what'd we'd slap on. Yes, it'd be great to get the Trail version but your GNCC division and terrain has us leaning toward the shorter travel YamaLink. It'll make the bike perform sooooo much better on the square edge and braking bumps, and while you may wish the lowering was somewhere between the Race and Trail we'd go for less leverage and more fast-racer (that'd be you) handling.
As for the "other links" we don't know a thing about theirs. We're too busy designing, racing and selling ours to even worry about what's on the market. We've been told ours costs considerably less and has a grease zerk which makes lubing your bearings super easy at a race.
And....we replied to your email in a matter of seconds."
Our reply: About 99% of TTR230 YamaLink owners simply turn their handlebar to the left and are mindful the bike sits a little higher up. We've never heard of an owner cutting & rewelding the sidestand like some other Yamaha YamaLink owners do.

My question is does your Yamalink work in conjunction with doing the stock rear lowering adjustment as well as the stock front lowering adjustments? Or should I just pick one method or the other? If it does work with the stock lowering adjustments do you have instructions on how to do so? I notice that your install video only shows how to install
the YamaLink and that is it.
Our reply.....Frank, Hello. We made the YamaLink to work specifically with the stock lowering, and the instructions that come with it give suggestions for bike setup with and without stock lowering if you choose to use just the YamaLink, but about 99% use the stock lowering option, too.

Our reply: If the instructions are followed and sag is reset & properly sprung then your 2015 YZ250FX will get better traction, turn better, absorb square edge and braking bumps tremendously easier. It will NOT wallow or understeer or bottom or turn slower if all the aforementioned are read and set up per the included recommendations.

Hi. The 2015 WR250F YamaLink lowers the WRF about 1.5" after resetting sag and being properly resprung for the YamaLink's extra leverage which is discussed in detail several times on the site. In stock. $165 plus $5.60 priority mail shipping in the US which takes about 2 or 3 days delivery.

Yes, the other option lowers the bike more. Please read the website; it indicates the RACE lowers it about half as much.
But for aggressive racers the RACE, when sag is properly set, is the maximum amount racers wanted. The RACE takes the abrupt rudeness out of braking bumps and acceleration holes most encountered in off-road races after hour two, three, etc. The increase in traction will be noticeable, too, and the lower center of gravity is almost like cheating when turns are flat, no berms and hardpack.
The other option has more lowering but it also has more leverage which can mandate a much heavier spring rate to achieve proper race sag and then requires more fine tuning of compression, rebound and fork height.
The 98-01 WRF YamaLink is pictured here, and so is the info regarding lowering amount (if sag reset and properly sprung for YamaLink's extra leverage).

The 2003 WR250F YamaLink can be found here, and I will ship to Italy as gift value much lower, but Italy customs is corrupt and steals packages if you do not ship via Express International. It is Option 1 HERE.

For a B Level racer on the redesigned 2015 WR250F the YamaLink we recommend is the Race version.
