How many of you would buy a lowering link for your late model RM (01-08) if one was avilable? I asked pro moto billet and they said the more demand the better and im just curious how many would actually buy one. I need one because im short and riding it at full height is kinda hard and pro circuits link is a stabilizing link not so much for lowering. Also according to them, the lowering link helps cornering as well and keeping the bike planted so for those who aren't so short maybe it could still help.

It would only fit the 04 to 08 125's. Not so sure about the 250's.

I wouldn't mind betting an RMZ lowering linkage would fit. I'll check it out over the weekend and get back to you. I have a 2016 RMZ 250, 06 RM 125, and an 06 RM 250
The newer RMZ's (2013+) use a fatter bolt through the link, but I put a 2013+ lowering link on a 2012 frame and just drilled the frame holes out where the bolt goes through the link and frame.

Yeah, well, not the same parts. Linkage changed on the 125's in 04. 250's might have been 03.
I'm not trying to argue with you, it's just the facts.
