I have a quick question for you suspension guru's out there. Last time I rode my bike, when I was landing from jumps (not huge triples or anything, just little ones) I noticed the forks would make a popping sound when I landed. I'm guessing I need to bump the compression up slightly, but since I've never messed with suspension settings before I'm not sure. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm 6'2", 145 lb, and I trail ride. I do get some track-type riding in, but not on an actual track. There are some little tracks with small jumps close to where I live where I go play around some times. Most of my time is spent on trails going moderately fast (4th or 5th gear, various throttle openings) with quite a few rocks and some small jumps. Suspension is box stock right now. I've also noticed the popping when hitting a rock at speed. Any help would be appreciated.
