I have a 2001 426 and a buddy and I adjusted the rear suspension last night. I did'nt touch the front because I was'nt to sure what to set it at. I weigh 215 lbs and ride alot of rocky single track. Does anyone have any recommendations for the front suspension? Thanks

difficult to recommend anything until we know what springs your running, what type of riding you do and what your skill level is.

At your weight You need to get "stiffer" (than stock) springs. The manual has good guidance on this. Remember that "stiffer" springs do not mean a stiffer ride, as they will be riding in a relatively less compressed state, offering a softer ride.
