04 vs 05 wr450 suspension?
Posted March 03, 2009 - 09:42 AM
I have a lead on an 04 wr450 and would like to make it into a desert racer machine, I'm thinking about the B1K and similar. I already have an 03'wr250f that I could use as a prerunner and it's wheels and other parts if necessary. would a place like precision concepts rather be dealing with an 05 than an 04?

I have a 05 wr with 48mm forks and I also have a yz250 with 46mm forks. Now that I have both of them professionally setup, I cannot tell the difference. Yes, technically speaking, the 48mm are better. But its hard to imagine that your riding skill is beyond the tunable range of the 46mm forks.
Do not let the forks be the deciding factor. You will be happy with either the 46 or the 48mm forks once you have them setup correctly. I am speaking from personal experience.
You should talk with DaveJ in the SUSPENSION forum. He talked me into keeping my 46mm forks and he set them up very well.
