Question about 2005 Honda CRF 450 R
I have just bought a crf 450 (04 model) and i feel that the front preload is set to hard . How can i adjust this, is it the big nut under the bottom of the fork?? And how much 'static sag' should i set it at . I thought about 55mm is a good start for dirt bikes, but i am a bit new to the dirt thing
Hi ...... Any preload and/or damping will be adjustable from the top of the forks (even upside down forks). Anti-clockwise to reduce, clockwise to increase. You may find that a previous owner has increased the 'weight' of fork oil as a cheap/easy alternative to adjustment or aftermarket linear or progressive springs.
