    KTM XC 250 suspension settings?!?

    Hey blokes, I have a 2018 ktm xc250 and I am chasing better suspension settings so I don’t need to spend any money on it just yet. It has the WP AER 48 fork and the DDC monoshock with linkage. I weigh 75kg with my gear. I am running the clickers slightly softer than standard and the fork pressure on a lower setting. I ride mainly enduro with a mixture of rocky gravel tracks to sandy stuff. I’m happy with the rear of the bike but the forks seem to be aggressive in action and I jar my hands and get very tired arms towards the end of a race. Has anyone found the sweet spot to tune these things but keep them stock? And if not what is the best option without spending rediculous money? Cheers 🤙
  3. I'm new to your community and I have a question that I'm sure has been asked and answered many times before but navigating this site can be a bit confusing at times. My question is this; is there enough adjustment in the suspension of my 2017 XR650L for my 200 lbs. for southern CA off road and street riding? I would say I'm an aggressive, intermediate rider. If so what adjustments should I make? If not what mods should I do and what size fork and rear springs should I be looking at? Any local companies here in LA? Thanks

    damper bushing

    The oem bushings were tight and hard to take off. I took them off to replace them with new pivot works bushings so I carefully expanded the bushing and got it on easy without stretching it at all and now the bushing is not even as tight. Do these need to be tight on there? I put it on the only way it could go and it seems like the gap in the bushing got bigger.

    2016 Kx450f

    I need help with my suspension set up, I just got a 2016 kx450f and the guy I got it from said he had it set up for him weighing 200lb. But me being only 140 its been killing me in the breaking bumps and just stiff as hell. I tried messing with everything. I went back to the stock setting for 155lb and it was still really hard. Any suggestion?
  6. I’m relatively new to dirt biking, I blew out the shock on my 06 125 and I’m trying to figure out the size of the shock I need (not trying to get a OEM) if someone can link me the size/ where to find a fitting shock it’d be much appreciated

    PW80 replace/repair suspension

    Hi. I bought a Yamaha PW80 for my son (actually he bought it). It was relatively cheap and I thought everything on it is probably cheap to replace. Long before I expected it he is jumping it and the suspension is bottoming out. I was shocked when the bike shop told me it's high AU$300s for the rear suspension. There are aftermarket for AU$50 - AU$100 however I am very skeptical about the quality. Can anyone give me some advice please regarding a reliable aftermarket, whether there is a reconditioning kit, any other suggestions. I'm in Australia. Thanks Chris

    Lowering a 2005 yz125

    I have 05yz125 and do mostly trail ride. I’m 5’8” and don’t ride often enough. I was considering lowering the stance of my bike to see if it make it easier to handle in tight trails. Any thought on linkage changes and how to adjust the front forks accordingly?
  9. Hi, I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot. I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled. I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled? I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock. I must have been made of cheap pot-metal. Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism? Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome! Thanks!

    A few picks of my winter project.
  11. Today we’re going to be talking a little bit about automotive suspensions and how they work to smoothen the ride of your car. There are mainly three purposes of the automotive suspension system. First, they support the weight of the vehicle. Second, they maintain accurate tire contact with the ground. And third, they absorb any shock that you get through the road when you hit a bump. Most modern vehicles come with an independent front suspension. Which means if one wheel hits a bump it does not disturb the other wheel. Nowadays, people use Coil Spring to support the majority of weight in the car. As it has a really good characteristics for absorbing any bumps as you go up and down on the road. However Springs aren’t very good at dissipating that energy. In fact that’s why you have the shock absorber. Which is there to smoothen out the ride and make sure the tire maintains contact with the road. In modern passenger vehicles the two most popular suspensions are McPherson strut and double wishbone style of suspension. The main advantage of the McPherson strut suspension is that it’s really cheap and simple that’s why a lot of manufacturers are moving towards this design. The double wishbone design allows the wheel to stay perpendicular to the body as it navigates a corner or as it goes over a bump. And that maintains good tire contact patch no matter where the wheel is situated. Another advantage of this design is that it can be made adjustable where you can control the position of upper control arms ball Joints.

    2002 YZ 125 Suspension Set Up

    Hey guys, I recently sold my 2001 YZ 125, and bought multiple YZ's... a 1998, a 2001, and a 2002. I rode all 3 and I know for a fact the 1998 YZ is the most quick. When you throttle it, it will go. The 2001 YZ 125 is average. Lastly, the 2002 is really fast (fastest YZ 125 I've ever ridden), but has no compression. It's weird that it has no compression, yet it's the fastest. I'm not sure what the PO's did with the carb or piston on the 1998 and 2002. I am selling the 1998 and the 2001, but keeping the 2002 YZ 125 since it has the updated plastics and stuff. Anyways, the suspension on the bikes are all garbage, and since I'm selling two, I don't want to fix it. But for my bike, how can I fix it? It is extremely bouncy, and when I go over a small hole, I literately jump 1 foot out of my seat and land really hard. If I harden the shocks, it will have no rebound and will also throw me off. What should I do? Also, shouldn't I set it up to my weight? Do I set the sag or does it need to get set up by a company like Pro Circuit? I would probably leave the front forks the way it is, unless it's required. Let me know, thanks.
  13. I’m a DIY’fer all the way. But I’m wondering if I can change my Factory Connection springs (front: from .48 to .50, rear: from 6 to 6.7) on my 2012 YZ250 without changing other parts (other than obviously the seals for the forks) and if so what parts and where to buy them? There’s only a few parts available in the FC site that I could find. I already ordered my springs. What other type DIY service can be done? Any advice/guidance will be greatly appreciated! #yz250 #factoryconnection #doityourself #suspension #onabudget #frontforks #rearshock #spring #kyb

  15. Hi guys! I have a DRZ 400 (I guess is an S model or a E version but not Valenti) I have to preparare the forks and rear shock for off road but I need to know the original setting (valves, etc ) to have a starting point. I use thsi bike mostly off road so I hope someone out there can suggest me a revalving/setting progression to set up better the front fork and rear shock Regardng the sprins weight, someone knows the stock weights front and rear? (I'm 75kg so I think the stock springs could be fine...but I have also a Showa Spring 5.2 to try) Many thanks!
  16. This is my last resort. I have emailed, called, stopped into numerous parts stores, mechanics shops, suspension shops and online stores and cannot find the bushing for the bottom of this shock. It has a 6" lift on a 2003 1500 Avalanche. There are no identifying markers of the manufacturer of the lift kit itself. I have found shocks that are the correct length by they do not come with a bushing. Does anyone know the manufacturer so I can contact them or an idea of where I can get a bushing? Todd

    Replacement options rear shock

    I've searched the forum for info on this, but can't find anything except for a shock in the TT shop. I'm in the process of rebuilding my 2005 SM, front to back. After running the engine into the ground, too little oil and stupidity, I have ordered a big bore kit. As I'm doing that, I want to get the suspension redone as well, but all the rebuilders over here refuse to service the OEM Showa rear shock, as it "will always be a poor quality shock". What are good replacement options? What is the OEM shock length eye-to-eye? Are there progressive springs for the forks? Thanks a lot!
  18. What's up all? I recently bought a 2009 yz450f and I have a few questions about sag and spring rate. The rear felt super stiff before I adjusted anything. After setting my race sag to 100mm and free sag to 25mm (which denotes a correct spring rate) my rear was super soft and washy. I jacked up the high and low speed compression, but it didn't help. Rebound is slightly slower than stock and feels good. I added pre-load and now i'm not sure what the race sag is because i have no one to help me measure it, but the free sag is set to 20mm and its somewhat better but honestly, I liked how the bike handled when it was super stiff. Should I get a stiffer spring? (maybe this one is worn out) Is it reasonable to ride with about 90 something mm of race sag and 20mm of free sag? Or maybe I just don't know how to ride. Any help is appreciated.
  19. Just got my first paycheck from my first formal job. So... if you had 800 bucks, what would you get for your 2015 KTM 300 XC-W? (I studied finance so dont tell me to save for my retirement or invest! that shit is #boring) Regards from Mexico!

    Stiction on WP Forks

    I would like to get my forks moving faster in order to respond to the smallbump-slowspeed chatter that bothers my ride. My valving is spot on (Race Tech Gold Valve), SKF seals are pretty fresh, and oil is at a good height. Ive come to the conclusion that im probably dealing with some stiction issues. Any tips on how to reduce this? Trying to find some low-budget solutions... (PLEASE dont suggest some kashima coating /ti-nitride fancy pantsy coating because im pennyless) Ive read some folks "polish" the inside of their fork tubes to reduce stiction. How do you polish these? Any special tools or technique?
  21. Attempting to change the fork seals due to a leak in one fork on my 1984 Honda XR500R with Showa mg3-771 forks. My dust seals don't look anything like the youtube videos, photos, forums that I have researched. Also researched this specific fork and found nothing. Also I can only find information about models relatively close to my bike(XR350, XR400, XR600), but not exact. My dust seals seem to be permanently attached to the inside of the fork tube, probably some adhesive and has a foam ring underneath it that is deteriorating, hence the leak. Anyone have any ideas how to change the fork seals without removing the dust seal? Also noticed that the foam ring should be under the white plastic washer, not on top of, when compared to my other fork tube that is not leaking. Left Fork: Leaking, foam ring on top of white plastic washer Lef Right Fork: Not leaking, foam ring under white plastic washer
  22. Hey Everyone, I have just recently gotten back into riding, and I have been trying to get my sag set on my bike. I have a 2005 RMZ 450. The manual calls for 104mm of rider sag. I am a bigger guy, 6ft and 320lbs. I know the spring that is currently on the bike is stiffer than stock, but I am not sure what the rating is on it. I currently have the bike set at 120mm rider sag, and 10mm static sag. I know this means that my spring is too soft, and I need to go to a heavier spring. However, I probably wont be able to switch out the spring for awhile. So for now, what is the best sag setting with my current spring? Should I try to get rider sag closer to 104mm, or should I worry more about raising my static sag? I do mostly trail riding and I am a novice. Will messing around with adjustments on the rear shock help?

    2006 Thumpstar 125 rear shock upgrade

    I just picked up a 2006 Thumpstar 125 and I want to upgrade the rear shock to accomodate my weight. I'm 6'1" and just about 300lbs. My bike has the A style or triangle style swing arm. There's some decent looking 1200lb rear shocks on ebay or there's the Fast Ace 550lb rear shock on Tbolt which says is for A style swing arms. My question is, would the 1200lb rear shock be the way to go for a guy like me even on the A style setup? Also would a 280mm shock work? And does the shock have to be A style specific or not?
