One of the most interesting parts on our retro YZ250F was
the Hinson slipper clutch. We’ve noticed that the YZ250F
suffers from heavy engine braking when letting off the
throttle and downshifting. The load causes the suspension
to kick and become unpredictable. That was no longer the
case after we added the Hinson slipper clutch.
The industry is replete with suspension tuners. We had
our pick of the litter and decided to go with Graeme
Brough. It was an easy call. Brough has an impressive
resume and has worked at the factory level. Graeme took
the already-great Kayaba SSS suspension and made it
better. He dropped the stiff springs for a lighter rate and
tweaked the valving for maximum plushness.
