Ensure correct sag is set and drop front forks by 5-10mm. Beyond that it's personal preference.

Yamaha settings

bottom of forks turn all the way in, then back out 12 clicks
top of fork - trail riding = all the way out then turn in 2 clicks, track riding = turn in 8 clicks
Rear spring needs to be adjusted so the tip of the rear fender drops 2.75" when sitting on it.
The top adjustment (compression valve) will be close to all the way out for trail and 5 to 8 clicks turned in for track.
The bottom adjustment meters how slow or fast the shock extends (rebound). Stand on something at peg height with one foot on the peg and the other on your stand and shove the bike down. Adjust the bottom (rebound) clicker to match the front of the bike so that both return to top at the same time.
This is a good starting point for any bike.
To fine tune your suspension it is always best to have a suspension tech watch you ride and make adjustments until the chassis of the bike stays flat while the suspension does its work. Usually take a tech 20 minutes to set the front and rear compression and rebound track-side!

After an attempt at tuning front/rear suspension I have successfully made it worse. Does anyone have the preferred suspension settings for mostly street riding? Occasional track day & high speed riding...

For more than you ever imagined about bike handling and set up you may want to read Keith Code's book " a twist of the wrist", it is super informative and could even save your life. I checked it out of the library. Good luck

Having trouble setting my suspension on my yz the sag is set cant get the rest to balence out for me im bout 150lbs does anyone noe a good setting for that weight?

In general you want to set sag for around 25-30% of the total suspension travel. Most dirt bikes are around 300mm of travel so set your sag (race sag) at around 85-90mm. Once you have done that, check the sag (static sag) without rider. It should be around 5% or so. If the static sag is more than 5% your spring is too hard. If it's less than 5% or zero then your spring is too light. This applies to both front and rear suspension.

These setting's don't have to be exact but it will definitely get you in the ballpark and help your bike to be balanced between front and rear. Also when you check race sag, you need to be in your natural riding position standing on the pegs wearing all your riding gear.

I want 2 knw the factory suspension settings for my 06 yamaha yz250

The settings depend on your weight and style of riding (terrain) . Place your settings in the middle , ride , and adjust them from there. Example: If you can adjust the front forks to ten positions (ten clicks) Set both front forks to 5 clicks. Set the rear shock about halfway or on the middle click. Ride the bike carefully over some whoops and jumps and make adjustments by how it rides. The bike will be easier to control when you are close to the right setting for you. My dirt bike rear shock was set to "0" when i got it. Every time I went over a jump the rear shock would try to throw you over the handle bar.

What can be done to improve the forks so they are not so stiff for fire roading and light off roading.

First, use the owners manual and check the setting of the compression damping. Set the compression damping a bit lighter and try it out. This will make the forks feel less stiff, but the fork springs could still be too stiff for your weight. Make sure the rear air spring has enough air in it too, this can adversely effect handling.

Next step, Work with a reputable off-road suspension shop to set up the bike for your weight and riding abilities. There is not much you can do with the rear air spring/shock, but I found that it worked quite well.

A couple of good suspension tuning shops are Enduro Engineering, Factory Connection. etc. Most of the good shops will require that you remove the forks and send them in for re-spring or re-valve work.

Ask at your local dealer that sells a lot of motorcross type bikes about good suspension shops in your area.

What are the tyre presurers for two up riding

30 psi front, 40 psi rear for maximum load. You'll have to adjust the suspension according to how much weight is on the bike. Tighten suspension until the rear tire does not rub under the fender when you negotiate bumps.

Good Luck
