Got an 09 wr450 and its ride height is 2 inches lower then spec. The previous owner was a shorter guy(5'8"+/-). Anyway I can confirm and or get it back to spec somehow? Thanks
Are the forks raised in the triple clamps? Is there a lowering link installed? Was the seat shaved? Otherwise the suspension may have been lowered internally. This would mean the fork springs have been cut or the stock springs were replaced with shorter ones, in which case internal spacers will be installed inside the forks. The rear shock may have internal spacers installed as well.
Since the bike is used it may be a good time for a suspension service. If you're taking it to someone they can check these things for you and set things up for your weight and riding style...
