I recently purchased a basket case 1999 yz400f and spent a small fortune bringing the powerplant back to life and would now like to address some suspension short comings.
Im 28 6'3 and around 280 or so pounds. Ive been to the racetech website and it seems they dont offer fork springs in anything close to a spring rate i could use. Does anyone know of another manufacturer who sells fork springs in the .55 to .57 range? Perhaps springs for another bike? It only shows up too .48 and the stiffest ive found is .49. I was surprised how soft the forks were, its hardly stiffer than my 1994 kdx200 with the stock springs. I do like the valving better though. I will be doing some lite motocross and some fast trail riding. Im really depressed about this, i bought this bike in the hope i could set it up so i could actually jump something for once.
Thanks to this forum for helping me get the motor back together! Lurkin and searchin
