Adjusting The dampening & rebound.

4 posts in this topic

Hello I have a WR400f year 01 that is a little bit sqishy. I did have it just right when I got it at 145 but now I am closer to 175 and it bounces like a son of a gun... Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make it stiffer and not come up to fast when i go over jumps? When I first got it it was way stiff took it into the shop only took them like and hour and It felt great then I started working out and gained a little over 30 pounds and its just way to springy. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Ya that was one of the things I though of.. =( So it couldn't be anything else? Or is there any other way to make it a bit more stiffer? I took it into a shop the other morning before posting this and they said the same thing and then they said 700 bucks!! So I though some of you guys might now something they didn't. Alright well thanks for your response. Have fun riding!

Try to find a local suspension guy. I'm lucky enough to live about 3 miles from a guy who is a Race Tech trained suspension tech...does the suspension work on the side. He's also an A class MX rider so he knows what he's working on. I usually take him the forks/shock and the seals/fluid...which normally retails for less than $50. He typically charges less than 3 #'s to do the fluid/seal change. Handling it this way, you should be looking at less than 1/2 of what the shop quoted you.
