Beta4 stage.For the MSM250F I do not touch anything as I use it as a "is it ridable?" bike when I make tracks. Stock with a 13/52 ratio and MedSoft tires, you should be able to ride everything decently. Put harder springs if needed front and rear.My YZF250 suspension setup (13/52 ratio with MedSoft tires):Front:Spring 5Bump 10Rebound 8Preload 12Oil 120Rear:Spring 57Bump 8Rebound 7Preload 13It adds up to a rather stiff front and medium but low rear. The bike will be fairly rigid with a bit of rebound to help you go over obstacles. It is very stabe in lines and turns resonably well. You may want to increase the rebound values once you start going faster to avoid getting too much air / handle the hard triples right outside of turns more reliably. No rider movement required to position itself well in jumps. I use a 20mm Front Leverage but that's to taste. This is what I use when learning tracks as it is very forgiving and predictable. My CRF250 suspension setup (13/52 ratio with MedSoft tires):Front:Spring 4.6Bump 11Rebound 10Preload 12Oil 105Rear:Spring 57Bump 15Rebound 12Preload 15This makes the CRF handle better and not bottom out everywhere. It stays low on jumps, has decent traction, and remains ultra-stable in the whoops. It needs however quite a bit of body movement depending how you approach hard hits (seat bouncing / pulling pushing to make it). It is however quite unforgiving, don't case anything. Here, 20mm leverage at the front as well.Enjoy!

My numbers don't go anywhere near those values.If you are trying on a different bike, remember that each model has its own limits to values so you might not be able to transfer those.Other than that, I just go to the suspension page in the pits while on a track and tune the settings there... you should be able to as well? I mean, select the YZF250, load a track, and directly in the pits go to the suspension page. You should be able to see the listing and tune exactly as I suggest. Don't mix up front and rear tho, they use completely different values for the settings you mention. I'll try making a video once I get back to a MXB capable rig
