Setting suspension

Recommended Posts

undefined

Hello, this is my first time here. First thing is first. I am completely new to off-road riding. I bought an xr250r in march and still have not been able to set the suspension/sag/rebouind etc. I have seen the links here and I am sorry, but I need a helping hand. I am 6'4" 230 and was told everything was set in the middle. I checked the front forks, rebound and damping and set them all in the middle click. When I put the bike on the stand (and that was tough-heavy) and sat down, I really went down. I know the spring has to be set by unlocking the lock nut and moving, but I don't know which way makes it harder and does making the seat harder prevent it sagging so low. Note: I need to make this work as I am riding an enduro in October, but am getting a new WR450F in November.

I'm a newbe, so I'm full of stupid questions. :applause:

I just sold a '04 XR250R. I'm 180lb & 5'11", ride fairly aggressive, can tell you the front forks need a stiffer spring for you. I bottomed mine often. Fixed it with a '04 CRF250X.
