    03 250YZF Suspension Setting

    how about the compression and rebound setting? I mean the clickers...
  2. Could anybody help me for the best dial suspension setting for my weight of 145lbs/65kg? What should be the most suitable fork oil level for my weight? I ride mx track most of the time and some trail riding in between...

    KX85 Fork Help

    Hi Chaindrive Thank you very much for your details explanation.Its been very helpful and I would send a mail to RT. Anyway it is not easy to maintain a YZF, a CR125 and 3 KX80/85. I used to sent all the bikes for any major job to a Chinese mechanic. He rides a WR400 and usually maintain all the local groups' bikes. I feel my YZF fork was quite stiff as I had to set compression at 18 out and dampening at 16 out which is very far from the recommended in the manual.Since I have the manual I dissembled the forks and to my surprise the oil in RH was about 140 but the LH was double which is full. I had serviced the forks and the bearings on swingarm/linkages. Since then I could say I should have done it earlier for the the best ride that I am having now. Next is to check the valve clearance. Good luck to you too.

    KX85 Fork Help

    Many thanks to both of you Frezno and Chaindrive...it help a lot. I will check out about the fork spec.Anyway my sons weigh around 80-100lbs ages from 10 to 16 years old. Is there any advise on how to determine the compression/dampening is optimum? I used to shoot video and watch how the fork and suspension acting during a table top take off and landing. How much gap is needed between the fenders and tires to say that the setting is good. My second son just broke his leg during an overshot last two months. He was just start riding back today. I want to find ways how to set a safe and comfortable ride on the setting. In Malaysia I can see that riders use to set quite stiff for the landing but it lost of comfort and a good traction. Thanks guy
