I have an 02 426 and it seems like the landing is way too hard, even off medium sized jumps. I only weight 150! Any advice?

loosen or lessin your compression dampning....a lot .........first, if no good
service forks and shock with new fluids and possible less rate springs for your weight...it is stiff probably and not bottoming....:thumbsup:

Send it off for a revalve and springs. Its amazing what a good suspension tuner can do for the 426.

Sorry for the misunderstanding...I meant the suspension is too soft, causing the hard landing!

This guy did mine. http://www.smartsuspension.com I forgot the total cost, I had him revalve the front and rear with new seals and everything. I already had the correct springs, so I didn't have to buy those. Give him a call, I'm sure he can tell you what it will cost.
