2011 YZ450F Preload adjuster

14 posts in this topic

So my preload adjuster ring needs to be cut off and need to get a new one on my rear shock. But for the life of me, I can't find any online to see what the cost of it is or order one up. I tried looking on Yamaha 's online parts catalog, and the closest thing I can come across is a "Seat, Spring upper", part # is 33D-22213-00.

The diagram can be found @ http://www.motorcyclegoodies.com/fiche_section_detail.asp?section=1755727&category=Motorcycles&make=YAMAHA&year=2011&fveh=51694 , and looks to be #7 from what the diagram says.

Is that the right part I'm looking for? I wanted the experts opinion on this before I go through with the purchase.

The adjuster ring is 33D-22213-00-00, and the lock ring is 33D-22234-00-00.

How about an X-trig instead of the ring? Its a little more expensive but its the cats meow!

Heres a link for MXAs test of it....

That would be much easier to adjust the sag for sure. But, a bit more than I am willing to spend atm. Thanks for your recommendation.

My experts opinion is go with the X-trig.....whats going to stop it from happening again? What about downtime?

How often are you adjusting your preload to get to a point where you have to replace it.....just sayin!

if the one on your bike is the same one on my 2010 i would get the rings from factory connection. they sell a billet set and are much more durable and less likely to destroy the threads on your shock. thats what i bought after mine seized and damaged my threads. no problems since.

Same here, siezed and stupid me I kept turning it. Ruined some threads.

Now I need spring compressor if I ever have to replace spring.:-o

I put on one from a Honda , works perfect and made from much better material (it's steel, not crappy soft aluminum.)

specifically, it's for '02 thru '08 CRF450R, and fit's my YZ450F perfectly.

Put an X-Trig on my 2008 YZ450F and after bolting things back together I noticed the airbox partially blocked the hex head. Maybe it's time to add some air holes to right side of the box. LOL

Anyone else running an X-Trig pre load ring on their 2008 or 2009 YZ450F?

I have on on my '06, and yes, the air box does interfere with it a bit, but it's still usable with either a nut driver or a tee handle.

Yep the 1/4" drive 8mm deep socket and extension is definitely out. Tee handle was my next option, but woould have liked to use the power drill on it. LOL

Does anyone have an X-trig mounted on a 10+ ??

I have one but found I would need a spring compressor (which I do not own) so I left it off, It seemed it was going to have a minimum of 10mm preload as well.

Now I had one on my KTM and thought it was great.
