not knowing much about suspension i am looking for what seems a simple problem answeered. (but im not too smart)

on the 06 wr450 if i bottom out the forks will the top screw turned to the + direction keep this from happening? of do i turn in the screw on the bottom of the fork?

the manual says the bottom screw is the compression but i thought it was the rebound dampening??????????????????????:applause:

i blew out a fork seal this weekend so i thought i better get this right.

I think you first need to determine if you have the proper springs for your weight. The attached link will give you the stock and then recommended.:applause:

then the first thing to do is to replace the springs with the recommended ones . you will notice a difference .
