Bought a used rm80. Just have general questions.

I bought a used rm80 off a friend and I just want to ride it around for fun, not like competitively. I need to find out how to put tires on and how to set the suspension and stuff. I weigh a lot ( like 220ish pounds) so I know the suspension isn’t going to be perfect I just need to find out how to set it. Right now if I can get it to not sag down to the back tire and make the back tire all flat looking I’ll be mint.

You're in a bad way. that bike was never meant to handle anyone over 100 lbs.
So, there are spring kits you can buy to get closer, but none will be for 220#
I would set every clicker as high as it goes, and just get used to it not handling properly.
The 80 is an awesome mid-sized bike that is alot of fun.
I have a special KX80(200F) and it still suffers terribly even with a heavy duty adult spring kit installed.

Thanks man! Yeah I don’t have money for that so it’s just going to have to hold me for a while. The back tire getting flat with plenty of air is the only thing that scares me right now.
I’ve been gaining up to 3 pounds a day for about a week now so it’ll be interesting to see how long the bike lasts.
