I am old and fat. I weigh 185 lbs., but my setups always work very well for a A-B class rider at 165 lbs.
Anybody 165 lbs. on the stock 06 450? What are your clickers?
My first run today had me clicking my :thumbsup: off! If only I could get the girlfriend to ride that hard! Sorry, I digress...
Currently at: Fr Comp 14, Fr Reb 7, Rr LS Comp 10, Rr Reb 8, Sag 95mm.
Bike is much better but very bouncy on rebound. Did a nasty off a big tabletop and pogo'd three times before I stopped bouncing. Wondering if I need to tighten both rebounds or what. Just looking for feedback.

Make sure you set your sag if you haven't already, and bleed the air out of your forks. Good starting point. Then go back to stock settings and test it.

You probably did this, but check tire pressure too.
