We have a non-oem link on the 15, but it's a YamaLink obviously. Often times it's best to reset sag and slide the fork tubes up a mm or two depending on personal preference and terrain, and how much the aftermarket link differs from the oem link. And be sure to properly torque the bolts upon installation.

Will do so! Was told by FC lots of guys running them so wanted to give it a try. If it can improve an already great bike worth a try. I usually like my sag towards the relaxed side but not on this bike so far.

Send it back and get the sub-frame lowered 25mm, unless you like a more slack turning feel.

 

Chopped sub-frame, 102mm sag and stock link will get that thing handling like a razor.

Who do you use for sub-frame lowering?

PM me if you are interested in doing it.  I have CNC machined titanium parts and turned aluminum inserts to do factory style adjustable subframes.
