All they do is add spacers which can be taken out again, completely reversable.
The shock has a spacer that limits the travel about 5mm, which equals about 2" height! The forks have spacers on the top out springs that pull the forks down by the length of the spacer. It only cost me like $60 Australian which is like $45 US. This is what they do for super moto bikes. Look at racetech for "reactive suspension mod".
The lowering link costs about 6 times more!
The lowering link is very expensive and only lower the back of the bike, and you know how it felt before you set the sag right. The forks work much better now huh.
You could get your forks revalved while you are at it.

Im barely squeeking in at 6' and never found a bike too tall. My inseam is 30-31" Granted 5'10 is a tad shorter, but I thought Id toss that out there. Id say if your 5'9 or taller the WR should be ok.
You setting the sag correctly? 98mm is what seems to be the happy place on the 05-06 WR.
AND how far up do you have the forks? (You said they are against the bars) It may sem trivial, but if the rake of the bike is now shifted forward with the front lowered and the rear stock, then the weight is also shifted forward. Thus your "unloading" the rear and not compressing the spring as far as it should. Your bike is unbalaced. Check it out....
Kouba makes a good lowering link if you must lower the bike.

Read my post! Search for suspension lowering! Search for supermoto suspension mods!
Thats really my question I guess, do I buy a lowering kit or have it done by a shop and set up for me again, what will they do? What will the shop do differntly than the lowering kit will do and what are the pros and cons of each method. Ive never had to lower a bike in my life. I love my WR to much to get rid of it cause its to high but I dont want to sacrifice any suspention either... Help??
It is not hard mate!
