Stock 97 YZ 250 shock pressure

Anyone know the stock pressure for the rear shock for a 97 YZ 250?


Anyone out there know?

142 psi but I use a higher pressure.

as said, it's 10bar = 145psi

I am currently running 165. I was wondering what effect it would have to go down to 140. I know the sag numbers would change. What other things may be different? Maybe not as harsh on square edges and decreased bottoming resistance? This is the one thing I have never tested.


Probably next to no difference in feel. The lower you go on pressure the more chance of cavitation in your shock.
