[COLOR="Green"]I know my spring rates, but cant say I know my clicker settings.
Im going to have to write them down
Do you guys know your settings and what you change them to for different terrain ?

I have a 04 with 5.6 in back
stock in front with Factory Connection revalve
And I like it a lot
I have only ridden in sand since I got it so I dont know what settings are for rocks and hardpack[/COLOR]

[COLOR="Green"]all the crazy things you guys do to tweak the WR motors (O Ring mods, YZ cams, 700 dollar pipes) and no one fine tunes their suspension other than sag?[/COLOR]

None of us can remember our settings:busted:

I have .48 front and 5.6 in the back - stock valving. I am running 5WT in the front at max recommended height level based on manual. I am 210 lbs. "A" level racer.

Set up for a GP last weekend -

Front comp. - 1 click out from all the way in.
Front Rebound - 6 clicks out from all the way in.

Rear HS comp. - 5 clicks out from all the way in
Rear SS comp. - 1 1/2 turns out.
Rear Rebound - 6 clicks out from all the way in.

I don't know sheet about suspension, I just try and get it right for my taste. I think clicker settings are too subjective to compare with other riders and bikes...

If I am riding tight and tech woods I will usually go out on the compression and slow down the rebound as needed...

Nope... I would normally think the same but for the high speeds and larger downhill jumps with too often a flat landing it really worked well:excuseme: Remember.... this is stock valving, 5WT oil and I come in at a stealthy 210lbs... I like to think that I ride hard too :confused:

Here's something you might want to try since you are using the stock valving - at your next fork oil change try Mobil 1 ATF (the full synthetic stuff - about 5 bucks a quart). It's between 5-7W and you will probably have to back out (soften) your clickers about 2-3 clicks. The fork action really feels as slick as snot and the beauty of this oil is that the fork action remains fade free and consistent over a much longer period of time than regular fork oils - a plus under race conditions. Give it a shot. Another benefit is it will give you a little more adjustability as you are already running at 1 out from all the way in. I use it in both my 07 and 99s and love it.

Holy crap! Don, you need a YZ (that statement might actually carry some weight if I could ever beat you on mine :confused:).
