1st of all i want to preface this by saying I know very little about suspention settings... 2nd I am riding an 05 YZ250 with stock everything, I weigh 210 without gear, i Ride mostly tracks with a bit of trails when we can find them. I have been riding my 05 for most of the summer, I have things setup so i am comfortable with the handling (not to say I would know the difference between ok and amazing), my problem is with jumps. When I ride with guys and pace them over large jumps I come in with the same speed but generally come up 6 feet shorter then they are (generally putting my on the flat or casing across a landing. Looking at pictures i bottom the bike out quite often (generally when I come up short on a table or end up flat landing). What have I done already? - Set the sag as suggested in the manual - Set all of the clickers to factory as in the manual - Found that way to soft, and progressively set everything stiffer until the bike handled Ok and then rode it. So my question is what can I do? Just from searching around it looks like the stock springs are not ideal for my weight. Could that be part of the issue and if so can I replace the shock and fork springs without changing valving? Or am i barking up the wrong tree and I should just learn to hit jumps harder.
