First off I am a suspension moron. However, I just had my shock and forks 'done' and had heavier springs put on both. My susspension tuner, (owner of the local shop), told me in all of the new YZ's he has seen the valves are not tight. His two personal race bikes he did before they were even ridden, and he said the valves were a little loose. Mine has probably about 6-7 hours on it and he said they were bypassing ALOT of fluid. I thought I would mention it to those of you who might want to know. It may be a good idea to check yours.
