I have an '05 WR 450 and I was wondering what you guys are doing to stiffen up your suspension. I am bottoming pretty good over doubles, but otherwise it is great over everything else. Bigger whoops are sometimes a problem.

I had the same problem with my 2005 wr450, i also weigh 190. Sent my suspension in to rg3 they put a 5.6 spring on and revalved forks and shock with good results. I ride baja and desert.

I put .50 springs in the forks and 6.0 spring on the shock for my 110kg ass.
The shock is good but something is wrong with my fork dampening.

When I get time I will send my suspension away to get valved and my girl's
away to get lowered as well. I should have done this to start with.
