suspension setup

4 posts in this topic


I have started to set up my suspension on my wr450 in sm spec. I weigh 220lbs with gear.

I've upgraded the rear spring to a stiffer spring. The front is standard which I know isn't ideal.

Just after advice in clickers top and bottom and rear and front sag.

It's not just 'not ideal', it's going to be a problem.

All the suspension action will shift to the front, causing loss of control.

You have to do them both at the same time.

Race Sag in the front should be 25-30% of the travel

Static/Race sag in the rear should be 25 / 100-105mm
