Mostly street, spring rate different?

11 posts in this topic

Would I go stiffer than the 'charts' show for a recommended weight for dirt riding? Will be mostly street with hopefully an occasional dual sport ride. Would you go one step stiffer? I'm 230lbs.

I second that.

You may want to check in the Supermoto sub-forum and ask about this. Those guys prolly know lots about setting up dirtbikes for the street.

For street riding, try adding a few clicks to both the rebound & compression dampining front & rear before buying new springs. See if that helps.

Make sure on the rear you use a real mono spring tightener, a screw driver and a hammer is for dumb asses who wanna make their bikes look like shit.

or for people that don't want to dissasemble their subframe to adjust their preload.

Sometimes a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do. It looks like a total dumb ass had the bike when there are massive indents in the preload rings because he didnt wanna buy a 13 dollar wrench or even take the time to rig one up for free. If you need to do it and do it fast, then I guess I can understand the screw driver hammer method.
