I have a poping or topping of fork spring sound on 2000 YZ426F. Started right after having new fork seals put in. So had a mechanic friend go through it again and found nothing abnormal.
Are we missing something or could I be remounting wrong, I have had forks off several times w/o problem but I could still be making a mistake. Any ideas? Thanks Rob

my 00 426 does the same thing when I land off jumps in the trail- the sound I here is a "pop" kind of a sound. I'm guessing since I have completely stock suspension, this is just due to clicker settings. Someone on here told me once that it may be the front brake cable hitting the number plate- worth looking into.
