XR80 suspension


Recommended Posts

Hey,

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding beefing up the suspenion of an 02 XR80? My boy, who is 9 and weighs 80 lbs,rides mainly trails with me, but he loves to jump ramps. It seems that the front shocks are bottoming out. I haven't changed the fork fluid yet. Would that help? Perhaps, a stiffer spring?

thanks for your suggestions, everyone.

Change the fork oil! You will be amazed at what a diffrence is made just by doing this. If you have the money go with stiffer springs for his weight. Make sure you constantly check his frame motor and suspension for stress cracks bends or distortion! These bikes were ment to play ride and are not ment to be hitting ramps. Small jumps are fine as long as the bike is being kept up. Look over your fork clamps on the bike as they could have stress cracks from bottoming out.
