Front & Rear Suspension Setup

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a 2001 XR250, and would like to confirm a few basic rules for suspension setup, as my manual doesn't say much of anything. I have searched this site as well as a couple of others but haven't got a complete picture.

[i]Front Forks[/i]:Clicker adjustment is on top and bottom of forks.

General Rule: Click all adjusters from counter clockwise to clockwise, counting # of clicks. Once done, back off clicker (counter clockwise) to half the amount.

Rear Shock:Same procedure. Count # of clicks, and back off half the #

As far a rear Sag goes: With rear wheel in the air, 190 mm? :cry:

With rear wheel on the ground, no rider 181.5 mm? :cry:

How much further should the sag go when a rider is sitting on bike?

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. :cry:

Sounds pretty good. However the front forks only have compression adjustment and it is located on the bottom of the fork legs.
