'09 Wr450 question?

Recommended Posts

I am a pretty big guy, I am 6'6" and pushing 300# with all my gear on. My suspension is too soft on my WR450. I will mostly be trail riding with some jumps thrown in here and there. I have no idea where to begin on this thing. I really need the rear stiffened up first. Can I get away with tightening the rear spring to help? Should I look at getting a new spring for the rear shock?Any help is appreciated:worthy:ride:

At your weight, I do not think you will be able to get away with the stock spring, but I would think that you could get away with just replacing it with a stiffer spring and not worrying about revalving. You will probably need to respring the front as well. There are some good posts on this forum to help you out more.

the main problem with really stiff springs, is the standard rebound settings cant cope, so you need a revalve for the stiffer spring.
