If you are bottoming, a higher oil level will reduce/eliminate your bottoming. How are your forks in the initial stroke (plush, stiff)? An option is too go to a heavier oil, or a heavier spring.
What is your weight, what is your level (novice, intermediate, expert), what type of terrain do you ride and at what speeds?
