I am getting back into motocross after a 7 year hiatus. took my bike to the track and the braking bumps almost fractured my wrists it was so choppy. I am 195 lb w gear and the rear spring is a little too soft, I set the sag and now the free sag is a little tight. However in corners its like the front doesn't even work, like I'm riding a bicycle with no forks. Im not a slower rider and I am heavy for the bike so I don't know why it won't absorb more when in turns. Only went out a couple times with this bike. Stock fork springs are 4.8 kg. Called enzo and the tech recommended stiffer fork springs? said I could be riding toward the middle of the stroke creating a tighter more harsh ride since it is more compressed. I honestly don't know if I need stiffer or softer front since I have been out the game for almost a decade. Anyone else getting the same results through braking bumps??
Im looking to update the suspension on my 1985 RM125 because it is insanely soft for me. I'm only a 150 lb rider so this leads me to believe that something is wrong.
I'm not experienced with suspension work so I don't know what would cause this.
I am also looking into an inverted fork swap and I was hoping that someone might know what triple clamps would fit my bike or what inverted forks would fit my stock triple clamps.
All help/advice is appreciated, thanks!
HELP! The internal rod and a few internal parts got messed up in one of my forks. If you have any internal parts or want to sell a complete leg or might even be interested in a complete set of front forks. Please let me know what you have ASAP. Thanks. Also interested in a rear shock off a 2014 - 2017 YZ250F or YZ450F.
Please call or text me at 801-362-8899. Thanks.
Just wondering what the max pre-load should be on the rear shock? Trying to get my new YZ setup and having issues with shock setup, ordered spring for my weight but it still feel wonky back there. Running 12mm of pre-load to get the sag settings where they are supposed to be but back end is still very bouncy and unsettled. I've even got the rebound set to 5 clicks out which is almost max for these and 11 click on compression. To me that seems very high for both, if I run the rebound closer to middle (15) then it's really springy and just feels terrible. So I'm wondering if my spring is to soft and if I'm running to much pre-load to get my sag numbers which is making whole setup just off??
