FORK STIFFNESS

Post by doug on Thu Jan 12, 2012 8:09 pm

FINDING FRONT FORKS A BIT STIFF ON MY WR, IS IT A CASE OF ADJUSTING THEM? OR TRYING A DIFFERENT OIL/LESS OIL,
SEEMS TO BOUNCE OF ROCKS ETC INSTEAD OF RIDING OVER.....

If you don't know when the oil was last changed its worth doing anyway.
Do you have a manual for the bike?
It should say in that how to adjust the suspension settings.

doug

have you let the air out the top after each ride as they can pump themselves up over a ride out and it will make a difference

Doug, if you can get the standard settings & return the comp & rebound to those. Write down what they are on at the moment.

When you go out this w/end adjust the rebound by one click either way, to see if they are better or worse.

It's just a bit of trial & error. If you get close to either end of the adjustment, & it's still not right, then you have to look at the weight or level of the oil.

But try to start from standard settings

Hi doug the standard settings for a wr a in the middle so if it 8 turns, for example in total ,the standard setting would be 4 turns from the bottom,also you can down load a manual free from yamaha web site what yr is the bike.
Here is a link for wr manuals.
