Was out this morning and got abit carried away when I took a run-up for climbing a long tall dune. By the time I hit the dune, the momenten I was carrying was just to much for the front fork, cause it made a big loud thunking :cry: sound when the fork bottomed out nearly dislocating my arms from my upper body :thumbsup:

My question is, can the WR frames and forks take these impacts? Should I check anything or any loaction in peticualr for damage considering the loud thunking sound on impact? :ride:

Mine does the same thing, Im going to order stiffer front springs, You can try to stiffen up the compression dampning which will help a little.
