450 fork spring in a 250?

Recommended Posts

Will a spring out of a 450 fit into a 250 fork? And would that work for me weighing 185lbs.? What about the shock spring as well?

yep. This is a very common swap. I went to .46 and a 5.4

I go between 180 and 185 before gear.

Cool! That's what I'll do then.....What weight oil do you run in the forks?

I did the same on my bike - went up to the next spring which were stock take-offs out of a 450 that the local suspension dude had on hand. It gets rid of the fat guy tailslap fork bottoming thing. :-) It did make headshake a bit worse though and I haven't totally dialed that to a tolerable level.
