Default Quick clicker question.

     

I recently picked up a 98 YZ 250. Im just a poor college kid who enjoys riding and this is the first bike I've owned that has more than one setting for the suspension. The thing is it didn't come with a manual. I just need to know which clickers to use to change the settings (front and rear). I have a decent grasp on how to set up suspension I'm just not sure which ones do what yet. I have a manual coming but it won't be here till after I go riding this weekend.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

On a YZ, they have Kayaba (KYB) suspension.

Forks:
The top is Rebound - You adjust from full in (clockwise all the way - not too hard, when it stops, do NOT force it), then count your clicks going back out (counterclockwise). Full in would be slowest rebound Full out would be faster rebound.

Bottom is Compression - Same rules apply for adjusting these. Full in would be full stiff (or the stiffest setting (compression)

Shock:
Compression - Adjustor on the ressie - (same adjustment rules apply to these as does the compression on the forks).

Rebound - Adjustor on the right hand side (if you were sitting on the bike) near the bottom of the shock, where the shock attaches to the linkage. Same rules apply to adjusting this as it does for the fork rebound.

Hope that helps.

Just some words to the wise.

1) Always write down the initial settings so you can go back to square one if you mess up.
2) Always Adjust one thing at a time, and start with rebound (because rebound affects compression to a degree, but not the other way around). Then ride it and see if it does what you want.
3) Keep track of what you change and what that clicker number is from full in.
4) Make sure both clickers settings on the fronts are the same. If they are not, make them the same.

Hope that helps.
