Looked around this seemed like the most appropriate place to ask.. Wanted to get information regarding a Heavy built rider..
2013 - KTM 500 - EXC - Stock everything
Rider weight; 309 lb. - Height 7'0 (213.36cm)
Fuel + gear 335 lb.
Type of Riding; Enduro Desert single track
Not really sure how to put this since i'm rather new to suspension in motorized bikes.. Seeing as the basic shock is for a 175 lb person.. which i'm not, so my question(s) would be;
1. Wanted to see if someone could point me in a direction for understanding terms in relation to suspension
2. Where and what would you have to modify to get a better suspension with said stats.
At the moment With what little knowledge I do have i'm looking for a stiffer rear shock spring to place on the bike. Some say you need re-valving, others do not. Not sure what this all means. I apologize for my lack of knowledge since suspension was never a priority till now.
Thanks for your time.
