Hey all, just wondering what route I should go on my 01 426, I am a big guy 6'2 250 and know I need to beef it up a little for jumping, (finally back on dirt after 15 years, been riding street) Not looking to spend a bunch of cash as I am no Bubba on the track and in the woods. Just seeing what other people did for this.

At your weight, the most important thing you should do is change the springs to match. There are spring calculators at the Race Tech Suspension and MX-Tech Suspension web pages. If you do the work yourself, it will cost about $200-250, and it will make a huge difference in how the bike works.
