PLEASE help me with kx250f suspension _ off road

Recommended Posts

I have an 07 kx250f

i dont know anything about suspension tuning but i have a problem in slow rough choppy stuff the bike bucks me like im riding a bull!!! in the fast braking bumps the bike is ok but when im in slow tight stuff forget about it.

I also have a tough time keeping the bike tracking in ruts.

Im not sure what settings to change or how to change it.

im on stock suspension but its obviously set very stiff.

I mainly race harescrambles but also ride pits with big jumps and moto x stuff.

Any help is greatly appreciated and welcomed

I owned the same bike and loved it.My riding consisted of trail slow and fast and track.I weigh 178lbs.First make sure your settings are stock and correct(Read your manual).Second check your race sag.This is starting from stock settings.Front- 3-4 clicks softer comp.2 clicks softer rebound.Rear shock 3 clicks softer and also 2 clicks softer rebound.Remember to start with stock settings,make sure you start from the right side.The manual says fully clockwise witch is hard then go back.

Honestly, if you want the best suspension setup for woods, you are going to have to revalve. The Stock suspension is tailored towards MX...jumps, whoops, etc. So the suspension is going to feel stiffer in the woods.

You can get the stock stuff working decent through clicker adjustments, but the revalve is going to be your best option. You can either send them out, or you can revalve them yourself. There are plenty of people around here that can help you out with getting the best shim stacks for your application and skill level.

If you do end up getting them revalved, why not do it yourself and save the $600+ dollars. There is a sticky thread in the CRF450R section at the top called DIY Suspension Revalve. Lots of great information there. theDogger will be able to help you out with custom shim stacks for your application too.

You can always move it back or send them out no harm done! 👍
