'01 WR Suspension Adjustment Questions
Posted April 14, 2001 - 03:34 PM
* Something with the mid-valve (didn't catch it)
* Lighter oil weight
* Different oil level
He said the stock springs are good and that I would notice a *huge* difference with these few changes. Of course, he wants $200 to do the job (3 hours of shop time @ $65/hr + parts).
I've never done my own oil changes/adjustments to any of my past bike's forks, just because it's a bit intimidating; *I would love to do the work myself, with some TT instruction, however.* I did take a few clicks out of the rear to soften it up a bit, and that seems to be working well.
BTW, I'm 5'10, 210lbs, pretty aggressive riding style, mostly woods riding but would like to get a little track and dunes time to get more comfortable in the air.
Any tips you can give would be great...

oil in with the fork oil that could damage them, so I wanted to get it out of there as soon as possible whether he new what he was talking about or not. I found some good instructions at www.motocross.com/motoprof/moto/mcycle/kayabafork/kybfrk.html. Good pictures and more detail about things you may find useful.

Go to racetech.com and go to their suspension area. They will recommend your proper settings for your bike based on your weight, riding ability, and terrain. I did this for my 2000 WR and it made a huge difference.
