2010 yz450 spring advise

Recommended Posts

i need softer springs on my stock yz450. im about 5'5'' and 148 lbs (about 68kg)wondering if anyone out there is a similar size to me and what they got going on.

i do mainly mx, i dont race anymore buy just like to go to practice tracks

race tech is telling me to run a .44kg fork spring and a 5.2 in the rear. your thoughts?

I would suggest a .44-.45 in front and 5.0-5.1 in rear( also factoring in your height) for moto.

I weigh 175lbs without my gear on so add another 23lbs for gear. My 2010 was way to hard for me in the rear so went from a 5.8 stock spring to a 5.4 and that made all the difference in the world. I can actually ride it now without my rearend being sore, I ride all MX and race also. I left the fork springs as is.

With your weight at 148lbs then I would say a 5.2 would be just the ticket.
