Hey guys just picked up an 08 YZ450 with 5 hours on it 2 weeks ago. 1st bike in many years. Here's my dilemma. I never was too much of an expert at suspension settings. If someone can help me get in the ballpark on settings it would be much appreciated. I'm 160 pounds without gear, and a decent Vet Novice. All input would be greatly appreciated. Sorry no manual.

Now you have a manual:


Start with the settings you find in section 3, back off of the compression settings by two clicks and add to the shock rebound by 3.

After trying that as a starting point, use this guide to go farther:
