Took a first ride on a 02 WR250 I recently bought. I had read many times that the Husky suspension is good with a revalve but is harsh stock. I had budgeted for a new bike so there are plenty of funds for suspension work and I have assumed I would do it first thing. But I was really impressed with it stock. It was very plush. I was charging over rocks and roots and could hardly feel them. It is much better then my 99 Honda CR250 that ProMotion revaved. I felt the front deflect a couple times (hydo lock ?) on a few small rocks but after I backed of the compression a couple clicks it seems almost gone. I think I am too heavy for the stock springs (about 2.5" of sag sitting on bike) and who knows how old the oil is and what the level is so I am sure they can be even better. The back felt good also. I could get it to kick a little when powering over roots but I don't know if any suspension can solve that. It kicked much less and stuck to the ground much better then my Honda. I couldn't get the the rebound but with how slow it felt I don't think it needs more. Maybe less would help? I haven't even set the sag yet so I am sure it can be better also. So I am wondering, as good as it is, would a LTR revalve make it much better? Suspension is the most important part of the bike for me so I don't want to skimp there but I don't want to throw money away or make it worse. I have ridden many other bikes like 06 KTMs and many revalved big four brands but none were as plush as mine. Since I was not used to the bike, was alone, and didn't have hand gaurds on I didn't push it real hard so maybe it will get overwhelmed when I do but I did purposely slam into a lot of big rocks at speed and it ate them up so I don't think it needs to be firmed up. It also didn't wallow or do any other things a too soft bike would do. I am thinking that most people revalve before they break in and that's why they have the reputation of being harsh. It is possible I do not know what good suspension really feels like and am not fast enough to need it but I know this bike has a very comfortable ride and all the negatives were for harshness and this is the least harsh bike I have ridden. Overall I am very impressed with stock, especially for an 02 model. BTW, if anyone knows what the stock spring rates are, what an intermediate 190 pound rider needs, best oil height in the forks, clicker settings to start with, etc please let me know. I am also curious if I can just add preload to the forks.
