Dialing in my suspension (H E L P)
Posted October 16, 2002 - 03:23 AM
Can someone please point me in the right direction for dialing in my suspension. I have a stock 2001 WR426 and weigh 240lbs (yes I'm FAT). Where should I start with my clickers (rebound and compression forks/rebound and compression shock), how many clicks in or out initally? Am I wanting a smoother ride or harsher ride?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The first thing you need to do is have an aftermarket suspension upgrade, Race Tech (I have) or MX Tech it doesn't matter, you will need to have the valving changed which will normally cost around $250.00, to include the fork springs replaced. You will need to upgrade the shock spring and have the valving done in the shock as well.....
It's only about $90.00 to upgrade the spring and if your not ready to shell out your whole bank account on the suspension at one time, the spring (on the rear shock) alone will work for awhile.....However the forks should be done ASAP, before you start jumping things.
The entire upgrade on my suspension cost me $600.00 complete. It was the best money I ever spent! I went from 230 down now to 200....Can't wait for 180 to get here for the increased staminia.
