This stack was in 2000 RM250. Good for woods?

Recommended Posts

I am rebuilding the forks on a buddy's 2000 RM250. They are 49mm Showa Twin chamber. We ride all east KY. woods and most of it is single track with roots and rocks. The forks has Pro Action stickers on them and they for sure have been valved. The threads sticking past the nuts on both comp and mid have been filed off. Here is the stack that it has. Can someone tell me if it would work good in the woods? He is 190 lbs and a fast B rider.

 looks to have a RT Gold valve. Or is it stock? Pics at bottom.

As it has a check plate it's hard to say ,you need a stiffer base with a check plate mid

What should I add to the base to make it nice for woods. I have some shims on hand. Or should I just rebuild them and let him try it to see what he thinks. He just got the bike yesterday and we are fixing it up some. He hasn't even ridden it yet due to the forks were leaking.

well we rode it this morning and the forks are really harsh. small stuff, harsh. bigger stuff, hang on. I really figured they would blow through pretty easy but they are not even going past half way down. Even holding the front brake and bouncing the front they just feel stiff. He rode my 17 KTM 300 with the xplor and wants it as close to that as possible. SOFT AND CUSHY. We don't ride much high speed stuff. suggestions?

Start there and then increase a few face shims if needed in whichever area needed

This will make them soft and cushy? Not doubting, just asking because that is what he wants. I'm no good at figuring stacks but i can do the work lol. I have tried to wrap my head around it but some just don't make sense to me. I was always good on mechanical but not the mental/figuring lol. Thanks for the help with this. I have to go out of town here in about 20 minutes but will be back tonight. I will try this stack tomorrow evening. Thanks again.

I will be rebuilding the shock in the near future. If you have any suggestions on a revalve for it I would love to hear that as well. It may or may not need one but good to have a head start and get the shims if it does. Well I am headed out. I will check back in here later tonight. Once again, thanks
