has anyone on here tried a fastway linkage on a yz450f some people say you can feel a noticable difference in the way it makes the bike handle and turn. Is this true or b.s.

TIm696,

Let me know the outcome as to how well you like it......

I've been a real cheap-skate lately, and don't want to put out any cash unless necessary.

There has to be more to it than just raising the rear of the bike. You could certainly change the head tube angle a lot cheaper by just raising the fork tubes and decreasing the sag (5mm in the front and 10mm less sag in the rear puts you in the same place). Does anybody know if there are any significant changes to rising rates in the linkage geometry or anything else with the storm link? Just seems like a waste of money till I hear some better science behind it. :ride:

Sorry to say, but there seems to be a lot of bandwagon mentallity when it comes to these bolt on gee gaws. "I spent $139.00 on it so it must be working." I'd like to see an unbiased test of this thing against raising the forks and setting sag. :applause:

I thought I heard that it does change the progressive rate of the spring. Maybe more will chime in to confirm this.

That's what I figured. Did you read the specs on the '02 Honda one, raises the bike an inch over stock! Feel sorry for the short guys trying it.
