I have a 00 CR250 and weigh 190 and ride mx.The bike is way to soft.I've tried turning the clickers all the way in and used moble 1 atf at max oil level and still to soft.I was thinking about trying 45 fork springs and 5.1 shock spring.Anybody try this setup?

Hey WFO Ijust put the 5.1 spring on my 2000 250 and it works great, but I have yet to get the fork springs. You better believe I need them too I weigh about 220 with gear. Hey , that spring might have been a 5.2, but at any rate it was a very big difference.

WFO, I too have an '00CR250 (MX) and weight about 190. I changed my shock spring to a 4.95 and forks to 45. The shock feels great, the forks still require some work, but I think it's more of a valving issue at this stage.

I weigh 187lbs and I'm running stock fork springs and a 5.2 shock spring. However, I've not running stock valving with this. So far its working pretty good but I might consider going to the 5.1 shock spring.
