Rear shock set up

Recommended Posts

So, i recently rebuilt a Rm 250 from 2 bike, after destroying most of my original bike crashing. I put on a  red  Rear spring i had laying around  just to try it out, but after assembly i sat on the bike and the rear shock doesn't compress very much with this spring in. Could over tightening the spring cause this? or could other adjustments be made the fix this? 

 

I didn't really have idea of how tight to get it

 

Thanks in advance.Snapchat-989378688.jpg.c7b3831643beebb0a9edb86cb0501f70.jpg

If you tighten the crap out of the spring you'll lose your top end softness, try backing it out a few turns. You just don't want the spring to be loose in the shock, it has to have some tension on it. If this doesn't help order a softer spring.
