Who doe's the best suspension work on the new 450f. I have an O6 and am in need of work? I weigh 215 and it's a bit soft.

With the caveat that Enzo seems to run on the stiff side with their valving.

You have to tell Enzo that you're not a pro ( unless you are) to get them to soften up a little. They were the best with the old single chamber fork, but I don't know who I'd recommend for the new fork. I, frankly, am not planning to have anything done to ours. See what others think.

I have not rode our 07 yet but spent some time setting up an 06 when they first came out. I would change the springs and try it as the valving seemed very good for me. I am with grayracer and do not plan on changing anything yet.

Skipper, have you considered putting the proper springs for your weight on first? :devil:

I have 07 and think they are fine. Mess with clickers(Vet 30 Int.). 215lbs. I went up on the springs with my old bike (03 yz250f).

The softer the better, Skip! You want a smooth ride when packing that deer out of the woods ;-)
