The single biggest complaint from CRF 250l and Rally owners is that the suspension is sprung way too light and the damping is inadequate. The bike seems to be set up for a 100-pound beginner rider- Here's how to fix that. A heavier spring or adjusting the pre-load will not resolve the issue.
Front Fork kit fits 2013-2020 CRF 250l & Rally/Rally ABS $249
The Fork kit comes with 2 springs, one light spring for riders up to 175 lbs and one stiffer for 175+ riders. The kit also includes billet fork caps with integrated air bleeders to allow easy air bleed and keep your suspension nice and plush!
PLEASE NOTE! The CRF 250L and Rally models only have 1 fork spring and it is housed inside the right fork leg. Also, there is a single aluminum spring spacer included in the Ohlins fork spring kit, it is used on the standard 250L and goes on top of the right spring. It is not used on the Rally. This is covered in the provided instructions, but folks are overlooking it.
