yz450f with wr suspension

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone have the shim stack info so i can revalve my yz to wr specs? I recently rode a wr450 and the forks were spot on I thought. The internals of the two forks are virtually identical except the valveing stack,, . thanks!

I have an '07 YZ450 and have ridden an '07 WR. I sent my suspension in and told him to make it ride like the WR. The guy went on a tirade about how the suspension components are totally different and he could not make them the same. Closed chamber vs open chamber blah blah blah. I said well make them as plush as you can because I ride off road and rocks. $650.00 later - my suspenion felt the same as it did before.

The YZ and WR forks ARE totally different.

That's not an excuse for not being able to make a YZ ride like a WR, or any other motorcycle you might name. Anyone who is good with them should be able to make an '06 a total marshmallow.

I agree with Grayracer. Now I just need to find someone (hopefully in Metro Phoenix) that can do it. I have been through this 4 times now (two different suspension guys) and now it is better, but still too stiff!
