'04 RM-Z 250, Front End

Recommended Posts

I'm having a hard time getting good traction with my front tire, it keeps on washing out. I have tried several different tires. Someone recomended that i get triple-clamps with a different offset, but i cant find any for this model of bike. Does anyone have any suggests or tips that they have used?

You may want to start with simple geometry adjustments. First, do you know where your sag is at? It should be around 100mm. Once you have adjusted the sag to a somewhat neutral handling, you can add some bite on the front by raising the fork up in the triple clamp. Go at it only 2mm at a time because just a few mm shows alot on the track. You don't want to go too far the other way either because you will compromise stability and may get some head shake in fast straights.
