Just joined TT and have enjoyed reading all of the helpful threads. I pick up my new 08 wr450 next week and want to know what if anything I should do to my suspension. Im 5'10 and a muscualr 230 that hasn't rode many dirt backs in the last 15 years. I have a BMW adventure that I trail ride but nothing like the capabilities of the 450. I used to race MX when I was a kid and I still expect to ride aggressive trails as soon as i get the rust out and get used to my bike. I will do all of the performance mods day one and am looking for suggestions that might improve the suspension without completely replacing the entire suspension. I see that in most of these reviews these riders are 150 to 180 pounds and they have a few complaints about bottoming out so i cant imagine what an extra 60-70 pounds might feel like on rough trails at moderate speed. I thank you all for the input and future discussions that come from this topic. jason from KC,MO.
