I am not a jumping guru, but I think your problem may be from jumping an ENDURO. Just a thought.

lol, so the bike can't jump cause it's an "enduro"?

I want the glue your on....... :thumbsup:

Firstly it's a compition dirt bike. And yes they do jump!

It's obvious it's not for freestyle mx, but I have jumped 25 feet no problem.
It could be your suspension setup?
How big are you?

i'm 5'6" 200 (hopefully 185 soon) its all stock suspension not sure exactly how the front is set up but the rear spring is right in the middle of the shock.

Yip. I have similar problems. A friend has Ohlins front and rear on his, set up for his weight, he has zero problems. My WR is going up for sale soon and the very first thing i intend to do to my next bike will be have the legs professionally set up for my weight and riding style.

Money well spend i reckon :thumbsup:

Your probably about 25 to 40Lbs too heavy for the standard springs but try increasing the compression dampening at both ends to reduce bottoming and increase the rebound at the front to reduce the bounce.
