If you DIY the kit is quite reasonably priced, (price of some fork springs) and will completely transform these forks.
The shock isn't as bad, but for the few $'s it is for the mods is well worth the change as well. Cures the rear end kick.

If you're mechanically inclined I highly recomend getting the Smart Performance Phase 4 fork kit ...(it) will completely transform these forks.
Shock spring yes, fork springs no. The fork is a different design that the YZ.
Alright thanks, I can't seem to find any in stock for the WR will the YZF ones fit the same?

Serioiusly dude, save up and get them done properly. It's the best mod you'll ever make.

tribal, i have the smart performance setup in the front and rear. can't get the kick out of the rear end when jumping large logs aggressively. everytime i hit them, the back end pogos up and bucks me straight up. any advice. i've tried adjusting the rebound slower and the high speed compression both faster and slower. sag is about 102mm. thanks jlow
I actually haven't needed to move the shock clickers. But I found there was too little rebound in the forks so I softened it one to two clicks. I found the front end was too dead (not to mention issues with packing on braking bumps on the MX track) but the rear was fine. This did give the rear more kick over stuff though as the suspension was not balanced.
Now with less rebound dampening in the forks the suspension is balanced and I get a nice lift off stuff rather than a rear end kick.
I like to hit lots of big logs as well, got a couple set up in my yard

Alright, Thanks. I will probably re-valve them, the Phase 4 kit seems to be the best deal so far.
Great deal and very simple to do yourself with a few tools.

Yeah, you guys seem to really get ripped off with suspension tuning over there in the states.
Do it yourself and save a lot over sending it out.
