I am helping out a friend with his suspension. He has a 2002 CR250R. He races east coast hare scrambles and enduros. He weighs approx 225 with gear. He is a fast Super Senior B class champ. The shock and forks have been revalved, but he needs the proper springs for his weight. I helped him get his race sag for the shock but had to use too much preload to obtain the proper race sag. I didn't even bother with the static sag, since I had to crank so much preload into the spring to even get the race sag close. I am not familiar with current Honda spring specs since I have been on a KTM for the last several years. I looked on the Race Tech sight to get an idea of what springs he would need. If someone experienced in Honda suspension could offer some info, I would appreciate it greatly. If you have the stock spring rates and recommended springs, especially for the shock, that would be very helpful. I understand suspension pretty well, and know that before we can even begin to dial in the suspension (rebound, compression etc...) we have got to get the proper springs. I just haven't had any experience in Asian bike suspension since the early '80s. The Race Tech site listed this as the spring info: FRONT FORK SPRINGS Recommended Fork Spring Rate: 0.450 kg/mm Stock Fork Spring Rate: .430 kg/mm (stock) REAR SHOCK SPRING: Recommended Rear Shock Spring Rate: 5.20 kg/mm Stock Shock Spring Rate: 4.9 kg/mm (stock) I am trying to get his exact normal weight and riding weight so we can have exact info. Any knowledgeable information and/or comments would be appreciated. Thanks!
