MX to Woods valving - January 22, 2017, 11:29 PM

Picked up a 2006 YZ250F recently, rode it at Wicomico, and fell in love with ripping around the woods like a mad man. Now, time to get this thing dialed.

I've been reading up on folks changing up the shim stacks themselves to get good results for going from stock MX valving to woods riding. I have an idea on the forks after reading (and have tools/experience), but I am not sure about the shock (let alone have shock tools). Does someone care to guide a newb with toolage and knowledge? Springs are already good based on Race Tech's calculator.

I can bring beer!

You *could* do it yourself. But that involves pulling both the shock and forks apart. Do you have the specific tools to do that? And put it back together? I mean, the Race Tech Suspension Bible is pretty good about leading you through projects if you know the basics. Oh yeah, you need a tank of nitrogen and the tools to charge your shock.

Or you could just ship them to Works Enduro Rider and have them set up everything for your bike, preferred riding type, and skill level.

I sent out my KTM stuff initially. Was very satisfied with their work and turnaround speed.

Nowadays I do my own suspension. But yeah, I spent an equal amount of money on tools to ensure I can do it right.
