Ok, so my riding has improved to a level where the stock WR forks are becoming more and more of an issue. The faster I go the harder the bike is to control. or is it not a fork issue?

going over rocky surfaces feels like my teeth want to rattle out, jarring on my arms, and is generally unconfortable.

Even the desert race this year I struggled to keep my scoot tracking though sandy berms. I went into a tree at 80k's an hour.

What do i do?

1.Send them to suspension specialist?
2.Buy YZ forks
3.Buy Ohlins or WP forks? $$$$
4.Buy a YZ and do the WR box and water bottle thing.

Your input will be appreciated:)

Option # 1 - revalve.


If you have a tuner locally, go to him because he will adjust it (probably at no charge) if the initial work is not to your liking.
