WR450 for "heavy rider" ?
Posted July 13, 2004 - 02:39 PM
I've read many topics here and i'm pretty much settled on a 04 WR450, I can get them for a pretty good price locally here and I'm pretty fond of its magic button
However, I'm 6'4" and 255lbs. What would guys sugest for suspension setup/modification, I feel that it'll be a little soft for me to start with and instead of banging the stock suspension, might has well do it right the first time.
I'll be riding just about anything from dunes to trails and some moto-X once in a while for the hell of it. I could say i'm a intermediate rider in most situations.
Thanks for any advices!!!!

Leave the front forks springs alone for trail riding.
Play around with compression and rebound until you like the ride.

In any case you will not be disappointed with the WR 450!!
