Default YZ250f suspension setup.

Where do you guys have your suspension setup. I way 200lbs, any info will be helpful. My seals are leaking but I'm rebuilding them soon.

hmmm kinda unsure about your question. If i take mine in to get revalved professionally i would go to a specialist around here in San Diego, or for just a rebuild I'd go to a dealer if its cheaper (don't trust myself to rebuild them just yet). OR are you talking about the set up itself like I have my compression X clicks out and rebound X clicks out?

ahh well thats kinda hard it would take someone with the same suspension as you and around the same wieght and ride style to get you to a good spot.

other then that its really trial and error.

there is a good post some where in here about setting up your suspension.

what i do is adjust by 4 at a time and then do a few laps while paying attention to what your suspension is doing then make smaller adjustments to fine tune it.

Yeah - this is a tricky thing to answer since everyone rides a bit differently and in different terrain.

I would strongly suggest that you get all of the suspension maintained - swingarm pivot, linkage pivots, shock, forks - everything refreshed. Even if this bike is fresh out of the crate - regrease the suspension pivots.

Then start by getting the sag set correctly, then balance the front and back, then start with your compression clickers backed out about half way and your rebound out 3/4 of the way. From there, Duran's advice is good - change settings by several clicks at a time to identify the limits. Keep records.

I would venture to say that you might need stiffer springs. The stock springs are for about a 160 pound rider if I am not mistaken. It probably depends on your ability and what terrain you ride on.
