dialing in a little more

2007 200XC, .42 MX tech fork springs and 8.0 shock. with gear about 215 now, about 200-205 no gear. Not an agressive rider, coming off knee surgery and do more sitting then usual.

One thing I'm doing wrong. Second ride on 2 stroke. I'm still counting on the engine breaking that I am use to on the 4 stroke when hitting turns or burms, washout.

on the clicks- do you turn them all the way in before counting or setting clickers? Or or should they be turned all the way out before setting clickers to the numbers?

Just curious- on the forks the rebound MX tech wanted is 10 clicks, why is stock so different with 20 clicks? Is it just set that way for my weight?

and on the rebound is set at 16 and the stock is 24? why so different?

I'm just gathering more knowledge for dialing it in for me, one click at a time.

Right now the bike feels like it is going to wash out most of the time on the front. My air pressure for sand was 9lbs. Was that too low?

sags on shock is good, so were on with the ratings

The front forks are compressing 2 1/2 inches from the bottom, so there is still 2 1/2 inches of suspension to be used.

Forks are on straight and torqued at right specs. No preload set, 22mm bolt turned all the way out on top of fork cap.

Forks are straight and set at right torque settings

I was told my a KTM mechanic that rides woods and likes the soft suspension set up to take the fork comp out 2 clicks and see how it is, if not take 25CC of fork oil out. It is at 130mm right now

id say 25cc from both legs is a bit radical, id say your fork springs are a little soft as well. especially to match a 8.0 rear.

clickers are a personnel thing and unless there at the track they cannot tell you which way to go - if you feel its a bit hard , back them off. try backing the rebound out till it starts to push through the corner then turn it back in two turns.

mark.

so when you say "pushes through the corner" , your meaning the opposite of the wash out feeling.

also about when setting the clickers say 10 clicks? Do you turn them all the way in the set or all the way out and then set?

when i say pushes through the corner i mean the front end does not hold the inside line and pushes towards the outside of the corner.

most people work from full in on the clickers.

thanks, well the bike pushes through the corner now. also like a moron, I set the clickers all the way out and went in with recommended setting.

Tomorrow I'll reset the clickers after turning all the way in a see how it handles wednesday

no worries, if it pushes wind in the reb (clockwise) if it dosn't wind out the reb till it does and then back it back in two clicks.

from clicks out from 1-10 go one click at a time after that go two clicks at a time.

its more sensitive the further in you go.

Thanks, going to a private track tomorrow night with some woods trails. My friend can help watch what the suspension is doing
