Check out Mountain Motorsports. They make a link that will drop the rear 1.5 inches. I had one on my 04 WR450, but I took it off because I felt that my steering/ handling in the tight woods suffered.....even after I slid my forks up in the triple clamps.

Just my 2 cents.

Instead of a lowering link, why not just get the shock and forks shortened and possibly resprung for your weight?

Dollar for dollar, having the suspension lowered by a good suspension shop is the way to go.

I agree.
The link changes the geometry of the suspension which causes problems.
Most have not been too happy with them.
I really wanted to put one on, but decided not to because of the feedback here on TT.
