06 CRF250X - Set-up for lighter / smaller rider ???

Recommended Posts

Who knows the suspension settings on these bikes?

From the factory, it's set for 180lb to 200lb rider

For a 135lb rider, when sitting on the bike, it sags about 1/4 inch, maybe.

Do I need softer springs or what?

Sounds like I need to spend more money?

The dealer told me, theirs not much they can do with the suspension settings. I'm pretty sure I can get used to the height, but it seems hard as a rock to me compared to my 03 KTM 200MXC which had multiple settings front and rear

Your going to have to adjust your sag by backing off the spring. You may not be able to get it where is supposed to be as far as static sag and race sag but it will be better than it is. Ride it for awhile to break it in. I bet once it's broken in and set right(or close) it won't be far off. Otherwise lighter springs are available and aren't that expensive.
