Help! I have a 2003 wr 450, and am having trouble getting it to ride like I prefer. I come from old school enduro bikes,, soft and cushy is how I like it. I want it to absorb small bumps, not beat me up! I dont get much air, or go very fast except on familiar trails. This bike has been a bit of a basket case suspension wize. The guy I got it from was taller, so he had the dampening stiffened up, preload on shock was cranked down, fork oil was high, and he had mentioned stiffer springs in front. What I would like to know is how to tell the fork spring weight, and what can I do to make the fork more plush? Rear shock is less of a problem. I have to keep the pre load cranked down on it to match the fork. However, once the fork is better, I think I can tune it better. Right now, the fork does not sag hardly at all, while the shock needs massive pre load to keep level. I actually have 2 sets of forks, so what ever advice is given, I can practice on my other set,, then install them. I am ready to dump the oil, rework the shim stacks.... what ever it takes. This is crazy! I need the fork to work. Right now it is too firm and harsh.
