    I haven't played with the bleed stack. Always just left them unrestricted.

    I'm still clicking away at the suspension on the 2018 I have with hardly any kms on it. They are soft, and can use stroke quite easily I have found. They have good bottoming resistance, but they're not as nice as my older set that ran more spring, less float, and a somewhat similar stack.

    They're not bad.. but I have found myself running more comp and rebound than their 'sport' setting.

    At the same time they are compliant enough that I don't really feel the need to tinker anymore and am happy enough to just ride em.

      For where we ride I think it's better than what it was, but I'll go back to a third face shim on the mid and maybe look at the base valve stack which is still std.
      Its ok EC I still love you!! They suit you you found mine front endy remember We are just different one minute was enough I hated it I'm such a lazy rider now with the 390 or maybe just old

        All good Marty. For me at least, it takes a bit of ride time to settle into riding someone elses bike, even going back from the Gasser to my other bike, ktm 350 with left hand rear brake.

          I'm like this too. I put it down to a lack of natural talent. ^rof ^rof ^rof

          It takes me time to learn a bike, before I am comfortable riding it. I changed from Sidi boots to Formas and even that small change was like learning to ride again.

              anyone have the standard valving for the yamaha yz250X?

              would be interesting to compare Yam/sherco/gas shim stacks.

              someone more handy than myself may post up the differences.

                    Note the 32 are .15mm on the YZX base valve. Coupled with a much smaller 10mm clamp.

                    .. float is much tighter.

                            What I ended up doing was going to see Chad's Offraod and getting him to revalve them to suit .. which ended up being the same as Wades Wildwood setup from last year.

                                Bloody nice ride soaks up all the trail trash like its not there and just so much confidence inspiring feel, plush and very planted to ride, basically its feels like a magic carpet ride now to me compared to what it was like !!
                                Rode a KTM with Trax & Cone Valve setup and it felt on par with that setup, the Cones did feel a tad plusher initially but otherwise Chads KYB & the Cones felt very similar to me
