I thought this would be a cool thread idea.

Ill start. Sorry for being lame here but im gonna say new rubber. I had a 05 yz250 and threw a new set of pirelli scorpions on it and I know ALL new tires are great and all but this bike was seemingly velcro'd to the ground. Any lean angle, any amount of throttle it would hook. Your turn

If it is a cost/benefit ttpe thing then springs for my weight.

Boyesen reeds in my 81 YZ 125, helped throttle response. I was 19 years old and that's all I could afford.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Suspension with out a doubt.

I let a faster rider ride it

Buy the green elastomers for it, a friend of mine had the same feeling as you until he tried the green ones.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

1/4 turn throttle tube.. Better than adding a pipe for 1/10th the money.....

On my YFZ it was the Vortex ECU. Took the brutal bog they have from stock and made the throttle response quicker than anything else I’ve ever driven

Xtrig clamps, get the bars where you need them.

Shock Revalve on my 95 KX250. Out of the box, the shock was horrible. Was completely unbalanced and made the bike almost unrideable to me. Pro Circuit revalve made it a different bike.

Slower shock rebound, cost $0 to have a more stable bike

|

Put spring forks and rekluse on 15 crf. Made it quite a bit better. Plasma cutting my shock mounts on my pit bikes and rewelding to handle bigger shocks and angles.

I don't have to be as smart as you hope to be some day anymore.

Another vote for good suspension....better lap times and safer

Fresh set of new tires is almost always the best bang for your buck in my opinion.
