In the still photos I have 20" Shredders on it. I also put some 22" Holeshot HD's on the front and that's what I ran in this cross country race. The rears seemed to work pretty good, but it was so dry that nothing was hooking up. I loved the HD's on the front. I will probably get some for the rear as soon as money allows.Originally posted by dannyz400
nice. what tires are you using in the rear? how do you thinbk the stockers feel compared
Oh yeah!! All of my buddy's have hopped up YFZ's. We have an arenacross race this weekend so I will show them what a Suzuki can do! I already beat them last year at this race on my LT250R. I think they are really scared now!Originally posted by wyomingatver
Did you kick your buddy's ass on his yam?
Not sure what you mean exactly. If you mean do I have the settings dialed in then yes. I played with the settings at that track until it felt right. For that cross country race I backed the preload and compression all the way off and nearly all the way off on the rebound.Originally posted by MXQuadRacer
Thanks for posting the pictures, do you have the shocks nearly broken-in?
I love the shocks on the ltr. They feel a ton better to me than the stockers on the yfz. My brother and one other buddy have long travel elka quad rate elites on their yfz's. In comparison to them, I would say the elkas soak up a lot more of the small bumps like in cross country racing the shocks on the ltr are pretty stiff. However, for motocrossing, I think the ltr shocks feel almost just as good as the elkas. I don't know for sure as I haven't ridden it in a motocross race yet just practiced, but I will find out this weekend.Originally posted by x-superman
I was just wondering how those shocks work on your ltr450 compared to your buddies suped up yamahas?
Is your suzuki snappy?
Actually the more I ride it the better the shocks feel so maybe they are getting broken in. I just thought maybe I was getting more adjusted to the quad.Originally posted by MXQuadRacer
Believe it or not (many people don't actually realize it), but shocks do break/wear in similar to how say riding boots do. Internal oil heating and such is needed before they will run to maximum performance...it doesn't take an extremely long time for them to break-in, but they definitely \"loosen up\". It isn't like a motor where there is an exact science to the procedure, more or less just using them and they will work much better after normally two hours.
