I have been contemplating going back to a two stroke and I was curious if anyone knew if the shock and fork from my 450F would fit in the YZ250. I just had my suspension done and I have a friend who wants to trade me. His 250 is like brand new but it is set up for a 165 pound rider.

They are the same suspension components, so it probably should.

It will, but your settings will be messed up. The bike is some 15 pounds lighter or more, so your suspension will seem super stiff.

I still have the original springs for mine. I would imagine maybe with my heft that it will equal out. I will have to check the stock 250 rate against the stock 450 rate. I weigh 225 with gear.

I believe stock 250 rates are .43 and 4.9 where as stock 450 is .48 and 5.5.
