DR650 Suspension

Recommended Posts

Hi

Have a 2006 DR650 I find the rear spring alittle soft I weigh 205lbs. Would like to stiffen it up without compromiseing the handling. I use the bike both on and of the road probable 75% on road and the rest off road. What is the best way to stiffen it up.

You answered your own question somewhat........stiffer springs are needed.

Stiffer valving and ~20% stiffer forksprings. Those forks are non-adjustable but are similar to the ones on 1996-98? RM250s, so they have potential that just needs to be tapped.
