Revalve or not???

Recommended Posts

I have also posted this in the suspension forum so sorry those who see it twice. I have an '05 WRF250 with stock suspenders. I am around 100kg (220lb) geared up and mainly ride sandstone trails which tend to range from rocky to deepish sand and with numerous erosion berms which provide me with plenty of airtime. :banghead: Obviously gotta get upgraded springs all round, as I've seriously bottomed out one too many times and front wheel tends to wash out a bit on tight turns and the sand can be a problem, but I've had varying reports on whether a revalve is also neccessary... one suspension mob has told me that the '05 valves are fine for this type of riding and that I will only need my shims looked at :banghead: . What do any of you guys who know a thing or two about suspension reckon on the suitability of the stock valves and will reshimming fix the probs?

Thanks in advance for any advice... Happy trails.

I would revalve them. Springs and oil can only offer so much help.

I dont think yamaha has made major strides in their valving. It has been poor for many years.
