Howdy, Id like to know how to adjust the front spring preload on my 04 WR450 ? Is there a pvc tube like spacer in there just like my old XT350? (longer=more preload and vice versa) If so, is it located just under the top fork cap? If there isnt, can I put one in there?

much appreciation

Nope. There's no pre-load spacers in there. At least not from the factory. Yamaha does sell some though. If you put any in, make sure they go in before the springs, so that they sit below the springs. Otherwise you will cause some damage.

ahhh ok. So.... there is no way to DECREASE spring pre-load with the fork in stock form??? right? Basically, id like to lower the front end more. Ive already raised the the forks higher in the triple clamps.
