I need a Lowering Link for a 2002 YZ250 2T. Only company that makes one I have found so far is this ML2 YamaLink.

Does any other company make a similar product?

Find some other way to get the bike lowered as these links really screw up the handling when installed if you can't raise the forks enough in the triple tree to get the OEM set rake back. You will hate it in the corners.

Thanks for the tips. I know that handling will get messed up and suspension will soften considerably too. The bike is only used for slow and go technical trail riding so handling won't be an issue. The softening of the suspension will actually be a plus for me too as I want the bike to be overly plush. But yah, with a 1.5" lowering these links are definitely not for performance or even sport riding. ML2 does make a .5" link for newer YZs that is more for performance riding or so they say.

After further research I couldn't find anyone else making one of these links so I just ordered one from ML2. Now anxious for it to arrive I will be heading to Moab in a few weeks. Looking forward to being able to dab easier this year.

Have you thought about cutting the seat down?

I've got a Yamalink off a 2002 125, see if it will work on your 250 and I'll cut you a deal.
