Shocks for an 07 150f

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at getting BBR front springs and the rear shocks, I love flying jumps, and I hate not being able to hit some jumps because I don't want to bottom out my bike, I do anyways sometimes. But if any of you have suggestions, I'd be happy to take them.

Those are some sick jumps! Maybe putting some thicker fork oil might help with the bottoming. Have fun.

Thanks! I have no idea how to do that, do you mind telling me how? And what kind of oil should I use?

Holy Smokes! Evil Knievel LIVES!!!!

Josh, before you go and buy the BBR springs, so a few searches on this site for other suggestions on suspension. All of your questions will be answers.

P.S. Please don't buy the BBR spring for the rear shock. I fear you'll be on your head faster than the lightning speed of your jumps. Seriously though, I'm going to advice against it. From looking at the pictures of you, let's just say you're not 200lbs. plus. With that said, there's a pretty high chance you'll be crashing a lot with that heavy duty rear spring.

P.P.S. Take the top screw of your forks off and add about a 1/2" of oil (in height) to the forks. Then screw the top back on. Then give it a go.

That's a really basic explanation of something you could do to help your forks. I'd explain more, but that might be a bit too much to explain. Give that a try. I think you'll like it. I'm sure someone will come in here and give you the technical breakdown and things to check, but I don't think that's what you're looking for and adding 1/2" oil is a safe thing to do. This won't mess anything up.

Oh, you should use fork oil. Not motor oil. Good luck

Definitely do as toneconsultant suggested. If you don't weigh at least 200lbs the BBR rear spring will be dangerous. I'm 210lbs with gear on and I had to run the BBR spring as loose as possible. You look like you weigh around 150 lbs or so which will result in you getting catapulted over the bars while landing the jumps you're doing.
