2007 250X sag

Recommended Posts

Today I checked the sag on my new to me 2007 crf250x, here are my results.

It appears the suspension is stock and has never been touched, the clickers were also all in the stock positions (according to the manual).

It may be worth noting that first I bled the air out of the forks, I also noticed the right fork seal has been leaking slightly so I will change the seals and bushings this winter.


On stand with back wheel off ground = 24.5"

loaded without rider = 22.81"

loaded with me and equipment (Without equipment I weight about 170)=20.6

So this gives me, according to my calculating machine;

race sag = 3.9"

static = 2.2

free = 1.69


All of those look perfect according to the manual except for the free sag, the manual says this:



6. Calculate the free sag dimension.
To do this, subtract the loaded without rider
dimension (step 5) from the unloaded
dimension (step 2).
Free sag indicates the distance your rear
suspension should sag from the weight of the
sprung portion of your CRF.
With the spring pre-load set to obtain the
proper race sag, the rear suspension should
sag 0.4 to 1.0
in (10 to 25 mm).
If the rear of your CRF sags less than 0.4 in
(10 mm) from its own weight, the spring is
too stiff for your weight. It is not compressed
enough, even though you have the proper race
sag adjustment. As a result, the rear
suspension will not extend as far as it should.

I am getting over 1", it does not say the effect of this though, do I need to be concerned with this?

Any input would be appreciated.
