I just got this bike, I ride mostly hare scrambles in the north east. I'm looking for any info on the best way to set up my suspension. Also if there is a good sites or articles that explain how the rebound, damping and spring setting work. Thanks
I own a 2001 KX250 as well. I ride MX in the "C" class level which is obviously different than offroad, but here are the settings that I use. I am 5'6" at 185.
I use the stock springs front and rear.
FORKS: Two clicks out (softer) from stock on compression. rebound is stock.
SHOCK: 2 clicks out (softer) from stock on the low speed compression and 1/4 turn out from stock (softer) on the high speed compression. I have my rear sag set at 4 inches. Rebound is stock.
You are probably a different size and riding style. I am short and have no style. :D But for most from what I understand, the stock setup is pretty good. You just need to play with the settings. Or maybe you could give us a little more info like height and weight and class you ride, and maybe more specific settings could be provided. Either way, hope this helps.
