stiff suspension

Recommended Posts

I have an 03 yz450f with stock suspension and weigh about 175 pounds and always feels stiff even after lowering the fork oil a little bit. Trying to soften it up a little bit without paying for after market suspension any helpful advice.

Man, that is a light 450, 175lbs!! J/K 😢

My 400 was pretty stiff and I didn't want to spend a grip of money to get the suspension done so the dealer said to drain the stock oil and get thiner stuff, lighter weight oil. Worked for me 😢.

Did you set your sag or mess with the compression adjustments at all? I have an '03 and it seems a little soft to me.
