We've had this conversation before but remind me. I'm a 250lb rider and wondering
what changes I should make to the suspension. Any and all advice is appreciated as
I am EXTREMELY pleased with the engine mods I did, ECU, Tune, Pipe and screw.

Set your sag first and foremost.
If you don't know how, youtube ' suspension sag setting' for dozens of links.
Once you try and set your sag you will discover that to get the approx 100mm of race sag, you will not have much static sag left, because your spring is too soft.
Now with the new springs you can set the rear sag correctly so the wheel will 'drop' into bumps when needed, but still stay up in the stroke for a smoother ride.
After that, you can go to the clickers and start dialing them in for your riding style. Typically, you will need a lot more rebound in the front and rear.

Quick question, not trying to hijack the thread, this bike is still really new to me, so I haven't figured out all the tips and tricks, but what's the best way everyone's taking out the rear shocks on late model WRs these days?
Right side panel off
Remove back half of exhaust
Put bike on stand so swingarm linkage is touching nothing
Remove shock bolts, taking care that the swingarm will drop
If you get the swingarm down low enough, you can pull the shock down, then up while twisting out

Ah cool thanks. Exact same way you can take my DRZ rear shock out without having to remove the subframe and all that.
