I just got a 2011 450 and might need to change the springs.
Previous owner was 185 lb w/o gear and a fast A rider. He went downcone rate from sotck on both ends and a bit stiffer on valving
i rode the bike a few times and the shock feels OK sOk but I can't get in terms with the forks (very firm). i tyried several clickers adjsutment and it ended up better but still too harsh for me
For my level and age (46 tomorrw!), I just want a plush feeling (not mushy though)
I'm 205 w/o gear and C level, practice only on MX track
Would the stock sprting rate/ stock valving work for me?
I kept reading about how good the sotck stuff is and don't want ot go through too many valving experiments
Rear sag numbers are 110/25
Thanks for any feedback
