Yup i'm running the pro circuit linkage, it helped the bike in terms of stability, I race off road and it helped

I cannot say it will help with mx/sx, I think the reason the bike stands high at the rear with the stock linkage is to help it turn, but this only works if you have a rut or a berm, on flat hard pack corners not so much,

You will have to raise your forks through the triple clamps a fair amount to compensate for the lower rear, or else it wont turn well, I run mine up 8mm and it turns great

Depending on the length/leverage ratio of the aftermarket link you may need a heavier spring if you are on the border of needing one with the stock setup.
