Sharing the same components as its motocross predecessor, the 250FX uses a KYB SSS fork and shock specifically tuned for GNCC-style racing. In the fork, a softer slow-speed valving spec to aid in off-road capability is utilized on this bike for 2017, aimed at helping the initial part of the stroke in loose, rocky terrain. In addition, valving in the mid-to-high speed section of the fork has been increased, to provide a more stable, progressive feel for higher speed and rougher sections of the trail. The shock also saw some minor setting changes to keep pace with the front end of the bike. Overall, we feel the suspension package is fantastic, and required very minor tuning to make the bike feel great in stock form. A simple sag adjustment, and a few clicks to soften the forks proved very worthwhile on this motorcycle and inspires confidence right off the showroom floor.
