Good morning Thumpers,


I need advice for adjusting my suspension.

I ride a 09 Yz450.

Suspension sag was adjusted correctly.

My problem nox is how to adjust the comp and rebound valves at my fork and in the back correctly.

What is stock setting ? How many clics in/out ? 

Could someone post his number of cliks he preferes to ride ?


regards from germany

Suspension settings do not transfer well from one bike to another, because the oil wear and contamination differences changes the settings.


You can download a Service Manual from Yamaha's website, which will list the stock settings.

Another non-answer :rolleyes:


Standard Euro settings for the '09 YZ450 were as follows:


Rebound 12 out
Compression 12 out
Rebound 8 out
LS Compression 9 out
HS Compression 1 1/2 turns out
Start by running each adjuster in ("down", tighter) clockwise until it seats gently, then count clicks/turns back out.
Ten follow this basic guide to get started: http://api.viglink.c...ion Setup Guide
