On my 99 wr that I raced motos on bottomed out easy on big jumps.I am only 145lbs.& it was still a problem. I went to a local susp. guy and he said the bike comes under sprung from the factory.He put larger springs in the frt. and revalved the forks. The bottoming resistance went up & the plushness is still there.At the time I dident feel the rear was that bad.After the frt. was done my pace picked up & the rear could not keep up.Then I bought my yz250f & sold the wr.Miss the power already.Hope this helps.
