I bought a new '06 YZ450 exactly 5 weeks ago (January 8th) and have about 20 hours on it. My suspension was a little stiff at first but has been absolutely amazing after it broke in some. Then the past few times at the track I've started bottoming out the front suspension on bigger hits and by the end of riding today it was bottoming out even on anything that I didn't land perfectly. I got back to my house and the forks were totally clean down to a dirt ring 1/2" from the bottom which I believe confirms that I'm bottoming out. I weigh 180 lbs with no gear on and hadn't touched the clickers before today. Is my month old suspension already messed up? If I sit on the bike and shove the handlbars down with the brake on it rebounds ok but it does seem soft almost like my WR suspension. Just sitting there shoving it I can get it maybe an inch or inch and a half above halfway compressed. I then turned my compression (by handlebars) clickers 2 clicks in to 9 out and it compressed the same amount. I then did 2 more clicks to only 7 out and it still compressed the same. Would I feel a difference in the clickers just pushing on it or do they not come into play until a ride like situation? I haven't had a chance to go back to the track to see if it's any better with more compression. So does it sound like something is wrong? Did the suspension just break in this past week? I'd be surprised if by breaking in it goes from sucking up the hits to bottoming out. I have been riding fairly hard for a new rider and have come up short on a few triples (50-60' but not that high) but I see guys case stuff way harder on bigger triples where the impact is much more due to their height and they aren't having problems with their suspensions. BTW- I haven't seen any oil anywhere on my fork. I did one time notice about 5 small drops of oil right beside my front wheel after I came to a stop after hitting pretty hard on that triple I'm learning. I looked all around my bike and couldn't find any signs of anything leaking but it was very strange that it just happened to be right where I stopped which was just off the track. Man, I just want my great suspension back and am going to be bummed if it already needs work after just over a month. Are these things that fragile? Please help!
