Ohlins Rear Shock for Honda CRF 250L
The single biggest complaint from CRF 250l 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.
Ohlins STX46 Shock for 2013-2021 CRF 250L The shock is equipped with a stiffer spring for 150-185 lb riders (68 - 84 kg) and offers precise rebound and damping control. (If you are installing on an ABS model, please click here to view the ABS install supplement sheet) The kit comes with great instructions and there is an installation video below.
Unfortunately, Ohlins does not offer a stiffer spring for the 250L. The best you can do is run the compression and rebound 20% firmer than normal and run your preload at the stiffer end of the sag setting.
