KYB TC trail setup questions

Recommended Posts

Well, I've been studying valving and suspension theory for a bit now and feel confident to start playing with the forks. Shock will come later. I have an '09 YZ450, 175lb slow B, fast C rider (depending on my crappy fitness), tight Northwest woods, lots of roots, rocks, and general slop.

Plan tomorrow is to do some basic maintanence, seals, bushings, etc. While it's apart, I'll take note of the setup to give me a starting point. Now, is there anything I can do with the stock parts that can get me started in the right direction? Can I simply remove a few face shims from the BV, and one or two from the MV? Shuffle a few around? Right now I simply want to soften them a bit all around to reduce the deflection from sharp hits. As I learn more, I can figure out what changes do what to the bike, can get an idea of which shims to order and go from there.
