Ok well A LOT of people seem to do late model RM build from 04-08 models and their is a lack of lowering links produced and Pro Moto Billet said they would do it if at least 30+ people would buy them. Just to see if enough people would I created this strawpoll so only vote if you are indeed interested only to see how many would be willing to buy. https://strawpoll.com/c9gke7xd

He will make you what ever you want and really reasonable with out having to make 30 parts. Honestly its ashamed that we cannot get any American companies to make us parts with out the greed of 30 pieces. No wonder all of our work is outsourced. Pretty sad actually.

Why not just use the Pro Circuit RM/RMZ (its the same for those years) lowering link that is available all over Ebay , new for about $210?

He mentioned that it's more of a stabilizing link rather than a lowering link.

You should be able to use a 2010 to 2012 RMZ 250 linkage, but they changed in 2013 to a larger diameter bolt where the linkage bolts to the frame.

A lot of American companies simply dont do it because of cost effectiveness, for having to design them and only make one they would waste a lot of money. Ive spoken to BBR about this

02 has a 2 piece linkage. So no, they're not the same.

No I haven't, never heard of them. Do they have a website where I can check them out? Do they manufacture their own parts?
