07450xc working with stock suspension

Recommended Posts

Just pu my 450xc yesterday:applause: would like to know if anybody has some working numbers on ajusting the suspension:excuseme: Im about 155 160 without gear and ride single trail, desert, and a lot of freeride stuff. I will be sending my suspension off for revalve in about 2 months, but would like to get the stocker stuff dialed in for now. Any info or working suspension numbers that you guys are using would be great!!! thanks:thumbsup:

I also have 450XC 07,5hrs. on bike. I weight 160lb no gear and ride trail/desert. Rear shock: 114mm race sag, 42mm free sag, high speed 1 3/4 out, low speed 15 out, rebound 23 out. Forks compression 18/19 out, rebound 19 out. Suspension is tight when new, works better the more hrs you ride.

All the way in clockwise then count number of clicks out counter clockwise, except shock highspeed adjuster has no detent/click turn all the way in, mark with color feltpen then turn back out.

Guys

I have a 2005 and run is tigth trails with SAG 100 mmm (difference), front 15/17 and rear similar to Fajitas. What do you mean by "114mm race sag, 42mm free sag, high speed 1 3/4 out, low speed "?

Question - what is different from our 2007 to the 2005 450 KTM?

Another question, did you consider the 250 XCW?
