Ya looks like 2 rates lower in front and shock stock is 5.6 and my recommended is 5.48 and says use the closest so I’m in between stock and one rate lower

So I tried tires at 14 and it did seem like I had more front end bite in corners but didn’t really change the straight line nervous feeling. I dropped the compression on the forks 2 clicks and found out I’m at the end of my clickers. It was maybe marginally ... more »

Thanks for the input everyone. Hopefully tonight I can test again. Gonna try and lower my fork compression and try. Then give the tires a try at that 16 psi area.

Will there be all this hate when the yz125 and yz250 comes out with the same model again since 2006 with no e start? Funny how Suzuki is always the one taking it.

Have thought about a link but I just put on a new chain. .8 hours on it. I put the forks back to 2.5mm height and that didn’t seem to alleviate it. Messed with air pressure a bit but going higher I think made it feel even more nervous. My track is very ... more »

Yup got it. I think I will start with sag and then the fork height.

I put one on a 2000 cr125. can send pics if interested. I used a 02 and up fuel tank, and airbox. Can use a newer style subframe but the subframe on the 2000 is the same except for the location of the silencer mount. That I cut off and had welded back ... more »

This is on a 2019 rmz 250. 9 hours on tires. Mx33s. I did try to go a few clicks stiffer on fork compression and the difference in handling was minimal, maybe placebo. But the front end felt then felt pretty rigid and braking bumps and jump landings ... more »

Solid advice haha. I guess more I think about it it’s low to moderate speed. High speed feels ok

Started new thread Twitchy front end solutions 6/8/2021 7:58 PM

What compression numbers are you getting? Have you check reeds and cage? I would check to make sure your crankcase isn't full of fuel also. Should have bright blue spark.

Tried out some kydex works ok. Not as sleek as an actual frame guard but definitely better than nothing
