Any recommendations on the compression dampening and rebound dampening clicker setting on the forks and shock for the YZ450F? I’m 6’3’ 200 pounds vet rider. I would like to lose 10 pounds but the chances are slim and none. :devil: I normally ride motocross and supercross tracks. I’ve been working with both setting but wanted to see if anyone had some magic settings I would have over looked… Thanks.

I'm not aware of any "magic settings" however, I would recommend experimenting with the settings if your stock set up is not satisfying you. Nothing to shy away from and is critical to do for maximum performance. Just remember to check and log your current or stock settings for a baseline record or something to go back to. I'm as heavy as you and frequently tune mine in for every different track that I ride.
