The manufacturer set them up for like 145-160 for 250f suspension settings. As that is their target weight range. But as a older vet rider at 190lbs I had much more fun when I rode my 2016 KX250f than I do my 450 now. The 450 is great cause it has the ... more »

Try backing the compression out a few clicks

Oh yeah I already have a RMZ450. I just love a 250f for fun factor

Would love to see a good review of one that has the suspension setup because that seemed to be the only Hangup in the reviews and shootouts. Unfortunelty it will get trashed again in the shootouts cause of the stiff suspension. Just curious how the stock ... more »

Gold valves, and InnTeck SKF glide kit totally transformed my TAC forks to a very good setup. I ran 177/0/192 for 190 pound moto vet novice. Glide kit took away a lot of small chop harshness and stiction. That was by far the best mod I made to the forks. ... more »

Sweet wheelie boys bike. Poor poor bike, at least it’s in good hands now.

Have you got to ride it yet with this valving change?

18mm shaft, correct

And hopefully some for previous gen soon too huh....😉😉

I think your on to something.....and the fact the goldvalves appear to have larger ports may explain that they came to the same conclusion.

What do you think about the mod that Krooztune is doing for the BFRC. Basically swapping the stock shaft and plunger out for a standard shaft with your “traditional” valve and tunable stacks on the shaft. To my understanding it uses that as well as the ... more »

I like your approach, and subscribing because I’m very curious how this turns out.

Reply to 2018 Suzuki RMZ450 8/14/2019 9:19 PM

So you intend to do this with the stock valve first? And then test with the Gold Valves?

Reply to 2018 Suzuki RMZ450 8/14/2019 8:38 PM

So in theory seems like an easy fix and a very intuitive way to approach your conclusion. If it were that easy to restore the rebound to bring the damping to a more favorable action. Why is this shock still a point of contention? You would think any ... more »

Oh wow that is strange. I have a 2017 so I have what feels like an amazing shock. Having never rode an 18-up I don’t know the BFRC so I am admittedly ignorant to how good or bad it is. But it was something I was extremely curious about when it came out ... more »

Curious as to how different the kit BFRC shocks are because a lot of the Top euros use it and their tracks a brutal MX tracks. In fact Gasjer is about to win his 2nd world title on a BFRC shock. Just wonder how different those are that the top guys chose ... more »

Reply to 2018 Suzuki RMZ450 8/14/2019 7:39 PM

Please keep this BFRC info coming. I’m very curious if you can get it sorted out because I’m not 100% sold that it’s just junk and needs to be swapped before you leave the dealership kinda thing.

Reply to Let's see/review those 2019 kx450s 8/12/2019 5:41 PM

In theory it should. That will affect the entire damping curve though and may be unpleasant in another spot. Have you thought about a revalve? Or possibly increasing the spring rt slightly in the front to improve holdup? I know the 5.0/5.2 combo seems ... more »

Reply to Plessinger......what’s the deal there? 8/11/2019 5:34 PM

The Yamahas look so good in the GPs this year by sheer volume of bikes on the track. Remember if AC222, Jh84, and CD25 we’re out there you would maybe see one in the top 5. Non the less they do look better on the track and I’m sure that’s due to unlimited ... more »
