2008 crf450r fork valve assembly?

Recommended Posts

Based on all the pictures and reading I've done, this doesn't appear to be stock. Anyone have any info on this set up? Or how I can find out? Thanks.20170401_095424.jpg

The ISC piston doesn't look anything like the '07 CRF250R and '08 CRF250X I've serviced.

Agree. One in pic is much more shallow

So your saying this is stock for 08? All the pics I've seen show 2 bushing sleeves where mine just has the thin piece. Thanks again.

Yes, that's a stock 2008 fork from an R bike (250R or 450R).  Which are different than the earlier forks.  I think the 2008 X model forks stayed the same as the earlier years.

There are other small changes too, such as 31mm face shims, a stiff midvalve spring, and a single stage rebound stack.
