Base settings for 250lb MXer, Kyb sss

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2013 TM which has the same spec forks as 2010-13 YZ450F's. The TM shock apparently is a copy of a works KYB.

The bike was setup for a 170lb pro, and it's due for a suspension service. Obviously I'll need heavier springs, in the .52 and 6.4kg range. Any recommendations on fluids , should I stick with 5wt or will heavier oil compliment the heavier springs without changing valving?

I'd just be happy to get them to perform close to how they were intended before I start trying to find a good setting?

I have 453mm fork springs that I intend to use to improve bottoming resistance.

A 7.5wt may help with the rebound of those stiffer fork springs
