Trying to get the 1998 WR 400 I just bought ready for racing. I am 6 ft and about 200lbs. Don't have a clue about suspension on off road bikes.
Can anyone tell me what setting front and rear would suit my size. I am using stock springs and if I can help it would like to stay with these to keep costs down for this season
Thanks folks
Andrew

Sorry thought I was on the WR page, but if you think your setting are relevant then great, I'll be racing enduro.
THanks

You will have to change the rear spring for sure to get the correct static sag
and still have enough spring to get the sag needed to deal with MX tracks..
I think your going to be too soft in the rear and pre-load too much to get the
sag you want...(will be topped out sitting static) Call your local suspension
guys for the correct rate springs and valving.
