I've searched this forum with no luck.

Kid is move'n up from the 65 to the 85.

I am clueless on where the suspension settings should be on the 2003 yz85.

He is racing MX (beginner class)

About 90 lbs with gear.

Average rider (hoping to get better)

Need to know rear sag ?????

Rear Compression and Rebound ?????

Front fork height (how far up in the clamps from the top) ???

Front compression and rebound.

Any help would be GREAT !!!!!

Just some basics !!!!

I totally understand that .

I just need some baseline settings on where to start.

I bought the bike used and I have no manual to go by.

I really need to know the sag adjustment for starters !!!!!

Keep your hands and feet away from Preds mouth at all times.

And don't disagree or contradict Rich, he'll only make you look silly. ;)

Been doing some read'n elsewhere and all is saying 75-85 mm on the yz85.

Anyone heard of that ??

I got IndyMX telling me 90-100 mm !!


We'll just wait for some more advice !!

yeah, this is an old thread i know. I am looking for the same information. On my sons kx65 I was able to find a baseline for the fork and shock clickers. For some reason I can find a baseline for a yz85.

Anybody?
