My front forks feel crappy towards the top, a little spungey I think.

Is there anything I can check like the fork oil? how do I know if it is at the right level?

Also what is the best YZ forks to go into a 08 WR450? I think if I can't get the feeling right this might be a suitable upgrade. Sick of the front forks bottoming out over jumps.

I changed the fork springs on my 08 WR450 and saw no difference at all. The real problem with these forks lies in the base valve. Check out this thread. http://www.thumperta...ad.php?t=776751
