Hi
I've got small problem with my front suspension in my new 08 yzf 450. It works ok on big bumps, on slow long travel compresion ,on jumps but it hits my arms on small things like rocks, gaps. I can feel almost each rock in the sand. Could you help me in setting it?

I had the same problem. I put softer ic springs and had a complete revalve. Can ride hard the entire moto now. I tried everything with the clickers with stock valving but never found a spot the would not hurt on the small breaking bumps.
