Got an 05 rm250. Forks have been harsh since I bought the bike. I have noticed that the forks have a lotof stiction and very stiff. Springs are .44kg has new pivot works bushings and seals. I weigh 200lbs. I'm running .4mm float and very soft valving (enduro/rock setup). Bleed stack is flipped and I'm running a bleed face shim on the base valve. It has rg3 base valve piston. Not sure on exact stack. Oil height is 300cc. 5wt maxima fluid. I have loosened everything-triple clamps,clamp lock nut,wheels,etc-still has stiction. I have some wear on the damper rod coating,but cartridge seals and damper rod extends and bleeds perfect. Could it be a bent fork? Not sure how to rule it out or what else to look at. Any ideas appreciated. Also-fork never bottoms even with low oil and light valving-always an inch or 2 left on fork that isnt used. Maybe iI have wrong springs? It's stiff until a larger hit and then responds unpredictable. Feels like its bound up until large enough hit overcomes stiction. Thought about buying crf250 forks and swapping bottom lugs but not sure if its doable.
