Difference in valving on YZ250, 250F, 450F


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a used 07 YZ250. The bike is great but the suspension is currently set up for a 190lb woods rider. Problem is I am about 70% MX rider and 30% woods rider but it may soon be 50/50. The bike does really well in the woods but on the track the suspension (valving) is just way to soft. It blows right through the entire stroke on landings, especially the shock.

I am looking into purchasing a stock set (forks and shock) off ebay to use for MX. I may eventually get the MX set revalved but would mainly just like to have some rideable suspension for mx so I believe the stock stuff will do fine.

My main question is, if I were to purchase a set of suspension from say, a 2007 YZ250F, how would this work on my YZ250 2-stroke. Are the spring rates/valving much different?

spring rates and valving are different

but i would strongly recommend to take your suspension to a specialist (suspension shop) and get it revalved according to your needs.

That's cheaper and way more senseful than purchasing a used set (which very likely wouldn't fit your needs anyways).
