I just serviced the forks on my 06. Although these are the best stock forks for MX, they can be a little harsh in the woods. Mine are terrific now. Went with an 1.7 ICS spring and made a small alteration to the compression shim stack. There are 15 32x.1 shims next to the base valve stock. I removed 2 of these and installed a 24x.1 shim as the 4th shim from the base valve. You would not believe the difference this makes on rocks and roots. Just thought I would pass this on to anyone else looking for a much improved ride in the woods.
