In the woods / trails they've been ok, but I ride on mx tracks alot too and they bottom horribly on any jump that gets me more than a few feet in the air.
I just got 0.48 fork springs and a 5.8 shock spring from MX-Tech, but haven't installed them yet.
MX-tech had no problem with springs for the '06 WR. Their calculator at http://www.mx-tech.c...pring_generator goes up to '06.

The bike rides higher in the stroke and the front wheel does not tuck under rocks any more. This is what was happening to me a lot with the stock fork springs. Also, my front end feels more planted and stable in turns (not that I am all that fast anyways)
When you start riding faster, you'll want a stiffer front end to obsorb the impact and to bounce you over obstacles.
Your front sag will definitely be off and your bike will feel heavy in the turns. Get the springs for the front. They are only $100 and will take less than an hour to install.

Where can I find front springs for an '06? I've looked at MX-Tech, RaceTech, Cannon Racecraft but they only go to '04. Will the '04 springs work or has Yamaha changed forks since then?
CANNON RACECRAFT has them for the 06 wr450...P# 43461 up to .50. Look at there application chart at the bottom of the home page.
