Hello, and thank you for reading this post. After months and months of debate and harrasment from my nephew(an '03 crf450 owner) I decided to buy the blue beast. First off..thanks to you all..I had the woodruff key issue fixed b-4 I had any problems. I also re-jetted, removed the airbox baffle, installed an FMF
q series pipe, installed the throttle stop from the YZ and this weekend, I will remove the gray wire. New triple clamps,and finally stripped the lighting off. whew..ok what I need to know now is the best suspension settings and tire combos. After putting about 125 miles on the beast at Hollister a couple of weeks ago, It was painfully apparent that the bike was sorely laking in the proper set-up. I am 230 6'3. And let me tell you...the stock set-up didn't like me too much..Trying to manuver the mud was like tryin to ice skate in Jello pudding..and needless to say, the bike was all over the place. My nephew in his infinite wisdom is trying to tell me that the sag
and dampening settings really don't mean that much, and being somewhat of a newbie( first bike since '82 rm 125) I was kinda swayed his way until I found YOU ALL!.. Any help would be great!. My riding is novice, and I usually ride at Hollister or Carnige. I hope to meet some of you at some time. You people ROCK!
