2006 wr450 stock suspension settings.
Posted April 24, 2012 - 02:27 PM
Just got a new to me 2006 wr450. I can not find the correct stock settings for the forks and shock. Also, can anyone tell me which is which for the rear shock concerning low speed, hi speed compression, and rebound. I see lots of dials on that thing but they are not labeled. I have downloaded the manual, but cannot find this info in it. Thanks alot to any responders. I rode it for the first time, and loved the motor, the previous owner dialed in the jetting, but I can tell the clickers are way off! At least I hope so, the fork is harsh on small square edged stuff,especially under breaking, but soft every where else, and tends to pogo when cornering. I already set the sag to 3.5 inches. I am 210lbs (220 with gear), fast, but not near as fast a I think I am, and will be riding mx, desert, trails, so any good compromises from stock settings would be appriciated as well. The bike has stock springs, but Im hoping to start with stock settings first, and go from there.

Sweet, thanks a bunch, Springs it is. Thanks also for the recommendation for the suspension thread. I want to give back alittle by recommending the ODI lock on grips. May be this is common knowledge, but these grips are awesome!!!! Learned this trick with mountian bikes, and was stoked to see them for motos!! No more overglued, safety wired, slipping grips. Remember rubber side down!!!
Sweet a mountain bike guy! Funny enough that I use Renthal grips on my MTB (a bit of moto for the pedal bike)!
If you cant find or don't have a good suspension shop around let me know I've got a great source for aftermarket springs and service.
