06 Yz450/06 Yz250

5 posts in this topic

I have been contemplating going back to a two stroke and I was curious if anyone knew if the shock and fork from my 450F would fit in the YZ250. I just had my suspension done and I have a friend who wants to trade me. His 250 is like brand new but it is set up for a 165 pound rider.

It will, but your settings will be messed up. The bike is some 15 pounds lighter or more, so your suspension will seem super stiff.

I still have the original springs for mine. I would imagine maybe with my heft that it will equal out. I will have to check the stock 250 rate against the stock 450 rate. I weigh 225 with gear.

I believe stock 250 rates are .43 and 4.9 where as stock 450 is .48 and 5.5.
