  1. Anyone have a diagram showing position of parts contained in the mid-valve (upper damping rod) that you could share? Fork is a Showa SFF 48MM gen2 model. Thanks.
  2. Looking for some info on suspension settings to use on my 2016 KX450 SFF Air Tac setup. I just started racing hare scrambles in Florida and its mainly sugar sand. The stock settings are way too stiff. Front tire just wants to wash out in turns so i know I have to lighten the psi a bit. Stock settings recommended are: 174 psi for INNER chamber. 14.5 psi for OUTER chamber and 203 psi for BALANCE chamber. I know thru many hours of riding I can dial it in myself but I figured there has to be someone on here who rides sand and has saved settings they use, Any help is appreciated!
  3. 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?
  4. So I picked up a used 2017 CRF450 last weekend and rode it yesterday for the first time. It has factory connection suspension done on it and works phenomenally. However, I noticed going through roller whoops that when I pull up hard, as the wheel is coming off of the whoop, there is a light knocking feeling. Like not enough to actually hear it, but you feel it in your hands. Just a light knock like there's a gap somewhere in the front end in something. Any ideas what it could be? I liken it to the feeling of when you're riding a really cheap mountain bike and you pull up theres a clunk as the wheel stays on the ground for a second while the suspension completely extends and tops out (this would be a very exaggerated example as the feeling in my crf forks is much much lighter, but it feels slightly similar and happens under the same type of circumstances).

    Second oil filter underneath shifter?

    Good day all, I am riding a new 2017 kx450f, the first four stroke i have ever owned. I am also new to actually setting up a bike for me (sag, clickers, air pressure in SFF Tac fork, etc.) I have been going through the owners manual, break in process, oil change vids on youtube etc. While on the genuine kawasaki parts site looking up part numbers, I noticed on the oil filter section that there is the regular oil filter on the right hand side of bike, and then another one on the left hand side under the shifter. The second one I have literally never changed, nor have i ever heard anyone ever mention it, or speak about changing it, and its part number is 49065A. http://www.genuinekawasakiparts.com/oemparts/a/kaw/57f5247e87a8660d6c7c9b66/oil-filter Are the engine oil, and tranny sump separated on this bike ie two different oils, one for engine, and one for tranny? Or is this just another filter entirely for the engine oil, and should it be changed frequently? Also, on the fork and shock clicker setting there is a sign that is similar to " S<--->H " for clicker adjustment. Can someone explain the basics of this? Compression=? Rebound=? Thanks!

    Kx250f fork measurements

    Hey guys. Been looking around like crazy for an answer to my question before starting a new topic but have had no luck. I bought an 05 rmz250 in pieces and after seeing how crappy everything is ive decided to build the engine and use as many parts of the bike as possible to build an 06-08 style kx250f out of it. Used to have 2 07 kx250fs and I LOVED them and the aluminum frames are cheap on eBay. My question is what are the fork tube diameters for the 06-08 and what is the distance between the triple clamps top to bottom? Just trying to figure out if my kyb's will fit in the triple clamps for the showas on the 2nd gens. Appreciate any info. Thanks!
  8. Alright gentlemen, Last night I picked up a CLEEEEEAAAAANNNNN 2003 CR250 for $1500. I've read that the forks were stiff on this model and the suspension liked heavier people. I am 5'10 165 lbs with gear. My question is, I have a set of forks from a bike I had in the past, 2008 CRF450r. Is there a difference in these forks? Would it be worth it to swap the forks around? For all I know, its the same forks. That's why I am here. Any help is appreciated, I can answer anything I didn't provide.
  9. Hello guys, I’m Marco from Italy, it’s a long time that I’m reading various posts here in the forum, they are very helpful, so I’ve decide to ask you for some suggestions. . I'm writing brcause ask for advice for the Showa 47 ex CRF450R that I took to mount them on a Beta Xtrainer (which as you it comes with poor suspensions). The Beta as long as you go slowly behaves very well, then as soon as you get up the pace becomes not very stable, so I found these Showa close to home very well placed at an honest price and I decided to buy them. What has been done up to now, as well as a complete overhaul, has been to shorten the stroke from 315 mm to 280 mm to respect the original geometry and replace the springs with 0.42 kg / mm. Now, I imagine that the hydraulics, is quite sustained so before installing them I wanted to put my hands on the shim stack but without spending a lot of money since I use the bike only on the weekend and I do not have to race, the initial idea was to copy the pyramid crf250x but I thought that maybe intervening on the shims present you can do something without upsetting the configuration too much (like removing or moving shims). This is my basic configuration, http://i63.tinypic.com/9qgw48.jpg, if you have any advice on how to move it would be welcome, even combining preload spring and oil to be inserted into the forks. What I was looking for is to get a slightly softer fork in the first part of the stroke and reading around I seem to have understood that already intervening on the bypass something is obtained. To finish weight about 72 kg without enduro garments, so around 80 kg dressed in overalls protectors and boots. Thanks a lot in advance and happy holidays to everyone.
