I am wondering if I can just replace the springs in my 426 and have decent forks? I weigh 250 with gear and have increased the comp. and damp. and am still bottoming on flat landings. I also have a 6.0 in the rear and no valving. any suggestions.

What height are u running your frok oil? I also weigh 250 and the stock springs were killing me until i went to 90mm oil height. But now i just got the front/rear re-valved and sprung, so I have to start over now and get it dialed in.

Good luck
