I recently bought a lightly used 2014 YZ450. I tried the MXA settings after riding it once or twice with the settings he had on it, not sure yet how I like it yet. When I bought my bike, the guy I bought it from has a son that is a national level guy and he said that his son helped him set it up. He's about 185, and seemed similar in speed on the tracks that we were riding at. I'm not sure if I like it better yet, but I did notice that when I went from the settings that he had on it (he said Enzo did the suspension, but I don't see an Enzo sticker on the forks and he doesn't know exactly what Enzo did) to the MXA settings, the front end seemed to get a lot looser going into turns.
Here's the MXA settings compared to what he had on it (x). I did ride it a few times with his settings, and it didn't seem to bad. I don't really remember the loose feeling in front, and I do remember it settling into ruts pretty well. I'm trying to learn more about suspension, and have never been one to do a lot of adjustments mainly because of ignorance on exactly what the changes do.
I'm 195-ish without gear, and am a novice-level track guy who rides tracks like Cahuilla Creek and Milestone.
Oil height - no idea what is in there now
Compression - 11 (8)
Rebound - 8 (13)
Fork height - looks flush, but the bike has Applied triple clamps on it
Race sag - 105mm
HSC - 2 (1 1/2)
LSC - 9 (6)
Rebound - 9 (16)
Seems like the previous owner had it stiffer, with less rebound. May go back to his settings again and try them back to back and see how it feels.
Any input on the settings, either before or after? Thanks for any input.
