The front forks feel a bit harsh I'm running 18 clicks comp and around 6 on the rebound and I think the spring is stock ( i'm 12 stone ).At slow speeds they feel too hard off road and if you pick up the pace you can almost feel a sort of stutter effect in the action.
I have stripped then down and replace the bushes and seals and refilled them with new 5wt oil .I had to replace the head set bearings and there does not feel like there is any movement in them.
I set the oil hight as per work shop manual but is it worth changing this.
The rear feels fine but he front feel very unsettled I sold a KTM450 to get this bike and off road I 'm not sure if it is is even close to it. I had hoped that it would feel more stable .
Thanks for any advice in this.

Are the triple clamp bolts torqued properly, too?

the WR seems to be a bad combination of slow speed mushy, and high speed harsh...
I'll grab some info from this thread and take a look

All I did was go back to a stock setting , the last owner's setting were way out for me , he had dropped the forks in the yokes by around 10mm , off all the bikes I have ridden this one is effected the most by this .
Now It's back to stock setting it rides like a dream.Dare I say it's way better that my old KTM450exc the WR feels much more placed and solid off road just, just what I wanted.
Thanks for all you help
