That's factory, yo!

The lowering links replace the "dog bone" in the rear rising rate shock linkage... by decreasing the length of the linkage, the chassis of the motorcycle is moved relative to the suspension range.

Anyway, enough nerding... Likely, the link installs with just two bolts. Unfortunately, and I say this not being farmiliar with the suspension linkage of Yam's, to access the suspension linkage means you may have to remove the swingarm, in which case a rear stand will do fuckall ;-)
A friend removed his rear bodywork and tied the subframe up to the rafters when he replaced his rear bearings (similar procedure) and supported the bike with jack stands.
Anyway - if you can access the dog bone without removing the swingarm - you're in luck, since then you can tie the bike up and articulate the swingarm through it's range of motion (by hydraulic jack) in order to line up the linkage ends.
Does any of this make sense, or am I all wet?
