Thanks for the insights. I will probably gather some parts & give it a try though I'm running out of winter down-time. Want to have the bike ready to go as soon as I can get back out in the woods.
I did check the travel, not as close as I would have hoped, 11.0" vs 12.4" & looks as thought the bottom shock mount varies some on the YZ/WR which may require a different 3-hole link.
Anyway, thanks again.
