Recommended Posts

Just picked up my new 09 KX450F,and rode it yesterday,The bike is awsome,but the suspension is extremely stiff,took the compression clickers out the whole way on the forks and 16 out on the shock,I weigh around 185lbs. also I am a Vet rider,anybody else think this way or is it just me:bonk:

You suspension needs to break in. you'll notice as you put a little more time on

the bike the suspension will begin to loosen up. after 8-10 hours change out

the fork & shock fluids and it will feel much better. good luck on your new bike.

the 09 kx 450f is a great bike!

you need at least 10hours break in period, and then a change of fluids to get the best from the std suspension.
