    What spring rates, Suzuki RM 250 '06

    Got back my bike with new springs - 0.40 and 4.8 and i like my bike much better now! I will play with clickers but i feel that fork springs is still a tad heavy for my weight and riding. I'm really impressed with stabillity, absolutely no headshake!! Saturday is my first enduro cross race ever Wish me luck I'm stressed now, what i will do on friday? I also put new style frond fender and number plate. Really love the look now, especially from riding position. It feels slimmer now Will post pics later!

    Thanks! I think i will go .40 and 4.8 route. What is your sag numbers with 4.7 rear spring. Can you get correct rider sag with 100mm free sag?
  6. Hello! Yesterday i bought a Suzuki RM 250 '06. Took it for a test drive and i really love it!! But.. springs at both ends are to heavy. I am about 148 lbs without gear. I was told that fork springs are 4.6 and stock (52) shock spring. I didn't set my sag yet so i havn't those numbers. Bike is really stable in sand and in other places, cornering is OK. I'm riding a couple of years but I probably could be considered a beginner. I will ride mostly enduros, fast woods, but also motocross tracks. Wich spring rate do you suggest for me - 4.2 forks and 50 shock or even lighter - 4.0 and 48?

    Oil leak from clutch actuator

    Thanks! It really was not difficult!!
  8. Hello! I have a Yamaha yz450f '07. I found oil leak from the clutch actuator? Oil seal is damaged? It happened after a day in realy muddy track.. How can i change the seal? I understand that i need to remove actuator, but to do that, do i need to remove clutch basket or is it some screw somwhere?

    Base Training

    Sounds reasonably.. Only - how can you train for longer events? Say - 2 hours? You can't "interval" train for 2 hours - there is big risk to overtraining! And IMHO this is the case, when aerobic training is the only way...

    Thanks for reply! I will try to do longer motos too! And focus on technique - diferent corners, balance etc.

    It is winter time right now and many of riders who are following a training plan are currently in base training period - long, but low intensity training. I train on stationary bike 2 days a week, core training un running once a week, all at low intensity, but longer. We haven't snow right now so i can continue to ride my mx bike on track once a week. The problem - i can't ride at low intensity, i always try to push myself And at the and i'm cracked (in a good way). Am i doing damage to my base training? What ar your thoughts? What are your approach to base training?

    If you own a 2 stroke,please reply once.

    I owned 5 two strokes and 2 years ago made a mistake - bought a KTM525EXC. A rebuild of KTM cost me about 2000$ - thats more than all my 5 two strokes rebuilds together And now i own Yamaha YZ250 '07.
