Crf 450 front preload adjustment

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

    Yes , i have actually done the same on my road bike. But the Crf has two small screws on the top of the forks , one of these has soft and ******* it. i thought this was for compression damping. The other small screw has nothing on it and sits off to the side a bit. There is another small screw on the bottom of the forks and these have soft and hard marked on them as well. Are the ones at the bottom rebound damping??

    Where is the Preload adjustment??

    Thanx , a bit confused, never had anything with upside down forks.

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.

My 04 crf 450 is leaking oil out of the air box breather


Hi, Jmattison21 and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/system overfilled.
2. Faulty breather valve.
3. Engine breather hose bent, pinched, kinked etc.
4. Air filter has too much "pre-oil".
5. Crankshaft seal failure allowing transmission fluid to migrate.
6. Blow by drain tube cracked/split or filled to capacity.

What are the compression settings for a 2004 (rider is 230 lbs), and 2006 CRF R (rider is 235 lbs)?


Compression settings are adjusted in conjunction with rebound settings AFTER the rear spring pre-load/sag is properly set. The springs on both these bikes are too soft for 230-235 lbs. so they would need to be replaced with the correct stiffer spring rates to properly set sag for starters. You can work around this by attempting to set sag near the ballpark and then compensate for this by adjusting the clickers. This requires you to adjust your settings the way pro tuners do - trial and error.

Have the dealer replace the worn chain. On this new of a bike I think the chain may be okay. Ask the dealer if you are adjusting the chain properly.
