on sff im testing ics 1.4 and 5mm more preload and thats make to fork linear pressure, stock basevalve of your bike is good

on midvalve i use 1,5mm bleedhole and a midvalve stack as that

26.15x6

15.10x....for make float 0.25

i make tapered alloy midvalve collar cause oem shim hurt the alloy and midvalve dont blow off

reb stack stock with 1.5mm hole is a good baseline.

So if I understand you use 26mm x .1 (6) and 15mm x .1 ?? no sure to understand this parts

 

Also develop this : i make tapered alloy midvalve collar cause oem shim hurt the alloy and midvalve dont blow off

 

 

Thank you a lot for your help

The 26s are .15 shims and they hitting the base plate so he uses a tapered one to increase deflection of the shims.

i run 26.15 x 6 shim

and 15.10x 3 or 4 for shut float to 0.25! u must check your float. if is 0.35 add another 15.10

Guys,  sorry to revive an old thread, i have just aquired a 2015 kxf 250 and the forks are horrendous. I have revlaved my kyb sss forks on my 450 but i dont really know where to start with these. Do you have any suggestions on stacks to try or other mods?

 

Thanks Andy

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey guys. I recently purchased a 16 yz250x and the first 2 rides i LOVED the suspension. Then the day before a race i reset all my clickers to stock and everything felt like crap. No plushness at all and deflected off everything. I now have a 5.4 shock spring for my 190 pound weight and dialed in sag. Any recommendations on where i should go from here? Right now the fork is 12 out on comp and 15 out on rebound. Shock is 1.75 turns out on hsc, 14 out on lsc, and 18 out on rebound. Any help would be appreciated!

      Today we’re going to be talking a little bit about automotive suspensions and how they work to smoothen the ride of your car. There are mainly three purposes of the automotive suspension system. First, they support the  weight of the vehicle. Second, they maintain accurate tire contact with the ground. And third, they absorb any shock that you get through the road when you hit a bump.
      Most modern vehicles come with an independent front suspension. Which means if one wheel hits a bump it does not disturb the other wheel. Nowadays, people use Coil Spring to support the majority of weight in the car. As it has a really good characteristics for absorbing any bumps as you go up and down on the road.
      However Springs aren’t very good at dissipating that energy. In fact that’s why you have the shock absorber. Which is there to smoothen out the ride and make sure the tire maintains contact with the road.
      In modern passenger vehicles the two most popular suspensions are McPherson strut and double wishbone style of suspension. The main advantage of the McPherson strut suspension is that it’s really cheap and simple that’s why a lot of manufacturers are moving towards this design. The double wishbone design allows the wheel to stay perpendicular to the body as it navigates a corner or as it goes over a bump. And that maintains good tire contact patch no matter where the wheel is situated. Another advantage of this design is that it can be made adjustable where you can control the position of upper control arms ball Joints.
