I have a 99 yz 400 with stock suspension. Its bottoming out too easy. I'm sitting at max oil height on the forks. I'm 6-3/205 any suggestions for new fork springs and rear shock spring.

Hey, i am 5'11" and weigh 163 lbs...i am running the next level of heavy springs in the front, they helped out a lot! With your weight i would also reccomend that you use the heavier rear spring. Call up race-tech (good springs) and they will be able to set you up well. You can also get them through your local Yamaha shop...but the price might be more. Good luck!
