I think it only fits later YZFs. At any rate, Ty doesn't have one to fit my '98 2st. If the deal had gone beyond that I would have asked what rate change was created. I wonder if Ty would have given me a straight answer...
Anyway a stock part is on the way by dogsled and bamboo raft it seems. Understandable but still dificult.
I did find one guy on Thumpertalk who say he's real happy with the Ty Link. How often do you find someone who spends significant coin and then says he's not happy? As I get more seasoned I feel I am less inclined to rose-colored-glasses syndrome.
I have this gut feel that the rate progression needs of offroaders is very different from what appeals to the "MXA Wrecking Crew". It may well be that the Ty Link is just what we need. Who knows...
I beilve that a flater progression till the final third of the travel would be what most ofroad guys need.. The MXer's typically like the shock to have a linkage with a "hitch" a little after 1/3 into the stroke for whoops, and mid corner traction..
Also Ofroaders don't need so much bottoming resistance.. When we where doing KTM testing this spring with the single piston you really learned how import the "Rate" portion of the linkage was..
