    '07 fork spring swap

    Hi All, I've been using my '07 WR450F for MX duties but the super soft forks are making my life very hard. I have to land every bump and jump on the back wheel, as if I'm riding some 60's scrambler. Landing front wheel first or even large braking bumps cause the forks to bottom out with a loud whack! I've tried fiddling with the oil height but even a max recommended it's still the same. The stock springs fitted are 4.5N. Yamaha max recommended is 4.6N. Surely a 2% wont be enough? I'm thinking of trying 4.8N (6.6% stiffer) I'm not hitting 130ft tables so i dont need it super stiff. I'm about 70kg. What are you guys using? And did you fit more/less preload spacers?? Thanks in advance Pancho
  5. I just bought a 2011 YZ 250. It has a honda front end on it, triple trees, forks, brakes, and wheel I believe. Guy I bought it from said it was off of a 04-07 CR125R. They preferred the Showa forks for some reason. Anyway, I'm thinking about switching back to the KYB setup. I found a used set off of a 2007 YZ250F but I don't know if the triple clamps/trees will fit. I believe both bikes had the KYB SSS 48mm forks from the factory when they were new. Does anybody know if I could swap these?

    Spring weight 96 cr250

    Can anyone help? I've got a '93 cr250 that i'm stripping down and sorting out with powder coated frame, new bearings and newer suspension off a '96. The '96 shock and fork need rebuilding which got me thinking would it be wise to fit new springs as the originals, being 20 years old, could have lost some of their original firmness, i'm interested to hear opinions on this. Also any suggestions on weight springs, oil and oil level to use. I'm about 12.5 stone (79.5kg) without gear on. Cheers, Rob
  7. Have looked all over the pklace on the internet, and can't seem to find any consistency for oil volume/levels for these forks. Also need inner chamber volume, if anyone has. Any info appreciated.

    San Diego CRF230F Owners

    Hi All- Briefly---I have a 230L, love it but want more and now just bought a 230f and am excited by the three rides I've done in and around Tecate so far. I'm overwhelmed by the suspension mod choices available, most of which are expensive. I don't want to throw money at the bike without knowing how it rides after spending $$$. My suspension is stock and I'm considering fork and rear shock upgrades. I would love to get even the briefest of rides on anyone else's bike who has done any of the following: 1.Emulators or new damping rods and rebuild 2. Steering stabilizer/damper 3. Either the Works, Fox, or the other (Hein sp?) shock 4. A reputable shop in town who has done these mods before. Mark at DMC is where I've been going for routine stuff. I'm pretty sure I'm not up for finding an entire other set of forks from another model and fitting them. Too complicated for my patience level and old man riding style. Unless you know the shop/guy who can do it all. Can I buy anyone a beer to let me ride around the block on their bike? I've been reading up about other peoples opinions on their suspension upgrades and it just isn't enough for me. I'd really appreciate a hand-on experience. Thanks in advance for any help. Rob
  9. I recently bought the bike and after first trip noticed there was a leak at the top, that seems to have went away(still leaks a little but thanks to you guys I now know that it is normal). Now onto the new issue, after the first ride I noticed there was a little bit of the leak on the forks and after the second ride it there was more oil and today I noticed there is small puddle under them. When I bought the bike the guy told me that he had just serviced them before summer so I did not give it much thought. But after the leak I contacted him and he said he did new seals, bushings and oil. So not a full rebuild but more of a service. He said to give it another ride to see maybe if it stops. Guy responded right away and in person was very upfront so I do not think he is lying, maybe just put it together wrong? I have never dealt with Suspension components so I am not to keen on opening them up. Below are some pics, so I hope some of you guys who had similar issue/know about these forks will be able to point me in the right direction.

    1994 Honda cr 250

    Anyone know the torque specs for the upper and lower bridge for the forks on a 1994 Honda CR 250R?
  11. I am getting back into motocross after a 7 year hiatus. took my bike to the track and the braking bumps almost fractured my wrists it was so choppy. I am 195 lb w gear and the rear spring is a little too soft, I set the sag and now the free sag is a little tight. However in corners its like the front doesn't even work, like I'm riding a bicycle with no forks. Im not a slower rider and I am heavy for the bike so I don't know why it won't absorb more when in turns. Only went out a couple times with this bike. Stock fork springs are 4.8 kg. Called enzo and the tech recommended stiffer fork springs? said I could be riding toward the middle of the stroke creating a tighter more harsh ride since it is more compressed. I honestly don't know if I need stiffer or softer front since I have been out the game for almost a decade. Anyone else getting the same results through braking bumps??
  12. I'm helping my son replace the seals on his 2004 CRF250x Showa forks. As per the service manual, We pull the cartridge and drain the tube. We extend the rod, fill with oil, proceed to pump, pump, pump the rod to bleed the air, then fill the oil to the proper level and reinsert the cartridge. At this point all seems right, as the rod extends on its own when compressed. Now, following the service manual, we pump the piston rod to full stroke and drain the extra oil from the oil hole. However, it seems like much more than 17cm3 of oil comes out. And once drained, the rod will not extend on its own more than and inch. Something certainly isn't right. What am I missing here?
  13. Basicly what the title says, I weigh 100lbs and ride a 2002 yz 250 I just bought this bike and its the newest and nicest bike I have ever owned im pretty proud of it lol (upgraded from a 1989 rm 250) Anyways I have never had suspension set up for myself on any bike I have ever owned besides clickers. my forks are leaking and I need to rebuild them so while im in there what all can I do too make this bike ride butter smooth for my weight? any advice on what and how I can set up this bike too ride best for me would be great. I cant seem too find anything with my weight on a bike this big any help would be greatly appreciated also I ride mostly trails roots rocks etc.
  14. One of the major shortfalls of the DRZ400 is the front/rear suspension in stock form. Early non adjustable forks were too spongy soft and later adjustable forks were stiff and tracked poorly. The rebound only adjustable rear shock was a bit better than the front end but still left a lot to be desired. Compared to my Husqvarna 610 it felt downright anemic and dangerous. While you can sink a bunch of money into revalving, respring, racetech, ect. and end up with a nice ride, I was more interested in what I might get with a bolt on swap. If you read through the forums there is ample info about which forks can swap onto the DRZ with the RM forks being the preferred. However, there are lots of variations in offset which complicate which year to buy, it's a little vague what exactly is direct compatible, and there are a ton of opinions on how it will ride better/worse etc, but very few reports back from people who have made the swap. That's why I'm writing this up. I chose to take a less expensive route which I feel looks better and performs to a level Im used to with my 2 stroke MX bikes. I direct swapped the triples and forks from an 05 RM250, reusing my stock wheel, rotor, caliper, and headlight with a DRZ400SM headlight mount, all sourced online for less than $200. All of this was direct bolt on with no modification. This change alone was night and day better in every way. It held a line with much more confidence and less chatter, it handles soft sand more like it's riding on it and less like it occasionally plows, it rides much smoother at higher speeds, and it's less twitchy as opposed to more. It felt much more nimble and lighter even though any weight loss was minimal. With just the front end swapped It immediately felt on par with my Husqvarna. In fact, it feels so much like my 2 stroke MX bike that I was genuinely suprised. This was all with the stock rear shock which now felt too soft and the new limiting factor. For the rear I direct swapped an 06 RM125 rear shock and reused my stock drz spring to help manage my weight. Realistically I should be running a slightly stiffer spring but with the addition of adjustable high speed/low speed compression that comes on the rm125 shock, the rear end management feels again substantially improved. The speed, confidence, and aggression at which I can take obstacles feels like a completely different bike. It does sit higher. By my measurements it has a bit more travel now. To my surprise, it feels better on the road up to 80mph and tracks very well with maybe a tad more brake dive than stock. All this being said, I'm not saying you should make the swap. I'm not saying it handles better than a boat load of money thrown at the stock forks. I'm not saying that my style of Southern California Ocotillo Wells desert riding is directly comparable to your style of riding. What I am saying is there is a lot of erroneous information about how this swap might perform and if it's worth it over stock. I feel based on cost and performance that it hands down is absolutely worth it! Feel free to post up if you want to know more. I would have appreciated some real world experience before I nervously made the leap.

    07 yz450f fork service

    New to dirt bike riding and need to service forks and replace fork seals. I have air bleeders buttons on my fork caps. To use the fork cap tool I'll need remove them when I tighten down the cap to the damper assembly. My question is will I have a problem with oil trying to come out the air bleed or air getting in when I have them out reassembling the damper together. Or do I need to buy oem air bleed screws. Thanks

    Xr100 BBR front forks make chunk noise

    Hello. So ive always stalked this page but this is my first post. I recently just bought a 2002 xr100 and the thing is great. I wanted to beef up the suspension so i picked up and installed the BBR front springs and rear shock. Rear shock was a b**** to install myself but it got done. However, the front springs are were im finding an issue. Theu were easy to install, and i added 15w belray fork oil. The bbr springs were about an inch bigger and required some compression to close the fork cap. The front feels stiffer however, it now makes a loud CHUNK when going off jumps or bumps. I dont know much about the science about suspension but id assume The rebound is too fast? Ive looked into and ive heard different things, such as, changing the oil to 20w, (which i will do next) cuting some of the spring off and adding a pvc spacer. I plan to minimoto this xr100 and abuse this bike...but not willing to pay top dollar. What can i do? Does anyone have any idea? Thanks in advance.
  17. Folks, I'm trying to determine why my front forks start undulating forward and backward when I'm in upper gears over 40 mph. Not sure if it's the forks or if the wheel is imbalanced. Forgive any ignorance, it's only my second bike 2012 Husaberg TE 250 and I haven't experienced this before. Thx

    76-78 rm250

    guys i have a 76 rm250 race bike..sorted and is a good bike my question is..... can i put 78 forks on my bike or do i need to put the 78 triples and forks al in one....also i have a 78 swingarm, will that bolt straight on as well... i have a parts bike with motor that is a 78
  19. Hi, I have cracked both of the spring guides on my 2017 300rr sachs OC forks. I need any help or suggestions on sourcing the spring guides separately, as you can see from the parts picture I can only buy the complete damper assemblies. Just can't justify about $900 for 2 plastic parts. Does anyone know if any other fork brand (eg WP KYB SHOWA) spring guides can fit into the sachs OC ? Cheers

    Shock Settings

    Okay, I'm new to tuning my own suspension. I got spoiled with my cousin's mechanic always being at the track. I basically would tell him what I was feeling and he'd do the rest. I know some basics, but my main question is about the shock. I hear people refer to adjusting their rebound and compression, and others about their high and low speed compression. I've done a lot of research myself, but nothing that lays it out clearly for me. Is the high speed another term for compression, and low speed another for rebound? Are there two adjustments on rear shock? or Four? I guess a simple fix would be to call my suspension guy, but I figured I'd ask on here first.

    Forks for a big guy

    Guy's, I have an 1997 Honda XR400R and I need to do the front forks. I'm a big guy 6'4" 375lbs. So far I haven't been able to find a setup for a big guy. Any suggestions besides losing a lot of weight. :-)
  22. Not sure if its been asked here or not, can't find anything that has a definite answer. I currently have an 09 RMZ 450 that I was able to pick up cheap. I want to uprage to a newer model (don't wanna spend the money for an 18 right now) but I hate air forks. I was wondering if the 09 forks are a direct fit into a 16-17 model or not? I think the triple clamps should be the same, just worried about the bottom linking up... Ive looked into the air to spring conversion kits but I have my suspension on the 09 valved and set perfect and would love to be able to put it in a newer model.

    CRF450R

    Hey just joined the page looking forward to talking with you guys! Alright I have a 2014 crf450r and I am getting tired of messing with the air forks. So I'm wanting to swap the whole front end. I was wondering if anyone knew exactly what triple trees would work from 250s
  24. I know there have been thousands of threads, etc talking about how to make the WP 4CS forks better. I have them on my 2016 KTM 350sxf and until fairly recently didn't really think they were that bad. I'm a 38yr old vet rider 165lbs...just started racing (yea I know, a little late), but have definitely put in a lot of seat time and am starting to understand the subtle nuances of the bike and the suspension. SO, naturally I looked for a way to make my forks work better. I live in San Diego, CA, so I have great access to Factory Connection, Race Tech, Pro Circuit, etc. WELL, for those of you that cannot seem to find the answer, I HAVE IT. I had a guy come recommended to me (Pete Russell) from someone at Pala...said he was hands down the best in the business. I took my forks to him and not only did he do an insane job revalving them, he had no problem walking me through every step as I watched him do it. His understanding of the inner workings was light years beyond my comprehension, and apparently superior to the big shops as well. Long story short, if you want your WP 4CS forks to be pure awesomeness, get your stuff done by Pete at NOST Suspension (www.nostsuspension.com). He has a 3-5 day turnaround time and charges waaayyy less than you'd pay for an A kit set up. EVERYTHING is custom machined parts that he developed and I could tell from the second my front tire hit the dirt that it was going to be a world of difference. I'm very very pleasantly surprised at how awesome my suspension is now...so time to start winning some races!!!!
