Yz250 spring rates

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I have a 2018 yz250 looking at changing springs front and rear I'm 200 pound ride b class moto.

Having problems choosing spring weights using the calculators as mx tech say I need .45 fork springs and 5.2 rear but racetech say .48kg forks and 5.8kg rear.

What are other bigger guys

racetech sounds a lot closer. 200 pounds with or without gear? FWIW I am 185 without gear and I run .48 up front and 5.6 in the rear

If you're doing mx your stock valving should be ok, though obviously custom valving can be better. Mines valved for GP so i can do both woods and track and not totally suck.
