xr250r spring specs for a 260lb rider

Recommended Posts

Found a 2001 xr250. What are the stock spring sizes? For 260lbs and a lazy rider what is a good spring size? Who would be the least expensive? My son is 180 is there a suggested mid range shock we can both use?

Thanks

Sorry to hear that. From what I hear they go fast.

Hopefully you find another soon, they really are fun bikes.

Now we can give you advice without you learning after the fact that you made a mistake. Get a 250 for your son and a 400 with some spring work for yourself. If your son is going to be of your stature consider a 400 for him too.

Yeah, I'm looking at a 2001 xr650r now or maybe a xr600. NO 400's to be found anywhere. My son's crf230 will have to last him awhile. This "hobby" is getting expensive, have a Rancher too.
