My 99' sucks in terms of suspension, it is harsh feeling. It transfers everything to my wrists on impact. I'm coming off a 96' rm250 that had great suspension to me, it was plush yet didn't bottom much where the yz is stiff yet still bottoms fairly easy. I've played with the compression and rebound settings on the shock and fork, but I haven't played with springs or oil height. I've never had a whole lot of luck with oil height anyway, but I was wondering if anybody has had their suspension re-valved or if gold-valves would be as good as sending my suspension away. I weigh 170 in gear and ride all kinds of michigan terrain and tracks. Any help or tips would be appreciated.
