Hello, I have a 2000 WR400, I brought my bike in to the local yamaha dealer to get the fork seals done and a few other things. They told me my bike was pretty stiff so they asked for my weight to make some adjustments. I am 160 to 170lbs fluctuate when I got my bike back and went riding it just seems so springy even when I am not riding and just push down on near the back its just to easy. Does anyone know what the psi should be for that air shock deal? I am not to familiar with dirt bikes but I am pretty sure it shouldn't feel like it does. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you much.
Thats a gas filled cylinder, nitrogen I believe, DO NOT put air in it:prof:
Is is to plush or easy to push down or is it to springy on the rebound?
Adjust your clickers, do you have a manual?

thanks for your help. =) I will take it apart and figure it out.
I doubt you need to take it apart... my guess is that the shop simply adjusted your "clickers"... look in your manual under chasis section for suspension adjustment... it will point out the locations and functions of each clicker for both front and rear...
The shop may have put a lighter weight oil back in the forks but you should still be able to get what you want out of the clickers.
