Has anyone used one of these? Do they really help the cornering on an 04 450 or is it just some unneccesary Bling Bling :) I have heard a lot of people say that the triple clamp offset is perfect on the 450's and to not mess with that :p
Anyways the linkage is priced pretty cheap when looking at other supension mods. :) Just wanted to hear some feedback :D :D

My friend has one on his 04 450, and he cant tell a diffeence, He bought it because it raise up the back of the bike alittle, and he is 6'5" so he needs it.

Why not look into the Fastway link?? Its adjustable, looks sweet, and I know you could adjust the fastway so you could feel a differnce on corners, But im not sure I could say that abouth the Storm.

I installed one on my 03 450 and could easily tell the difference. I was able to lay the old girl over alot easier than she had wanted to in the past and it railed through ruts and berms far better than before as well. I am not sure if they did anything to improve the turning on the 04's but if not I would think the Storm Linkage would be a good investment.

You can also PM crazymotoman411. He doesn't hang around much these days. But I know he has had one for a year+, I'll ask him to post.

Thanks fellas, I knew somebody out there had some experience with it. What is the difference between the 03 and 04's that would make the linkage seem to work better on an 03 than a 04?

He's got it for sale on "Ebay" right now. His new suspension does not require it. You can pick it up for a deal and test it. If you like it, you got it cheap :) . If you don't, relist it and let someone else give it a go.......... :)
