I know I posted this in the "What did you do to your XR today" thread, but I just wanted to start a thread for anyone that wants to search for this specific topic for this in the future. I found out when I was searching it was hard to find anything for the 250 suspension upgrades. I've been dealing with a buttery soft front suspension on my 02 XR250 for a lot of years and have always wanted something to stiffen up the front end to prevent the dive into the corners and the bottoming out off of jumps. I've tried heavier weight oil (10W), compression set at the full hard setting, inserting washers to add preload, but none of those ever have got me to where I want to be. So I got to looking at aftermarket options, which I came to find out that there were none anymore. Eibach used to make some springs, and Racetech didn't offer any. Long story short, after numerous google searches and talking to some people I got the physical specs for the springs that I needed. I then got on Racetech's website and found a chart that listed all of their springs and the specs on each one. (Length, spring rate, O.D., I.D. and Travel) There wasn't a direct match for the 250 but I did find one that was within a few mm of my stock springs but with a higher spring rate. I went from the stocker .38 kg/mm to a .46 mm and after getting them on the bike I can already feel the difference it has made. The spring number that I chose was the (FRSP 3245 0.46 kg/mm). The problem that I found is that they only offer the .46kg/mm in this size, the other option is what the stock spring rate is for the XR. So if you want something heavier than .46 or inbetween you're pretty much out of luck as far as I can tell. For me the .46 is what I need, I'm 200lbs and ride woods at what I would like to consider, a fairly aggressive pace. I don't know if this will help anyone or not but I like when people start threads on what they did and if it worked or not.
