Questions RE: 16' 450FX

2 posts in this topic

I pulled the trigger and I'm heading up to the dealership in a few hours to pick up the new ride... Super stoked!


Couple of questions as I've never owned a Yamaha. .. All KTM's prior to this...


- I plan on greasing all wheel , steering steam, linkage, swingarm, etc bearings and loctiting bolts...  Anything in particular I should look out for?


- I'm picking up the tuner and also have an FMF slip on coming today. What is a good base MAP setting for hare scramble racing in tight single track and the FMF muffler?


I'm ordering a couple sets of fork and shock springs for my weight. I plan on riding it with the stock valving for now as I've heard it's pretty good. What sag numbers should I start with for offroad use? I'm sure it's in the manual but thought I'd ask y'all what you've found works best as a base starting sag.


Thanks and I'll report back after riding it this weekend!
