just got the bike, havent ridden it much except for a couple hot laps around the parking lot where i trst drove it. im coming from the 2-stroke mx bike-convereted off-roader world. i am noticing a couple of troubling things about the bike, mainly the rear suspension. first off, the rear seems much stiffer than my yz250, which is strange seeing as the bike is supposed to be a bit more plush than a mx bike. second, i can jump up and down it pretty hard (220lbs worth) and the shock tube never gets down past like halfway on the rod (like im bottoming out but at the half-way point) i am fairly certian it is the stock spring, and the guy before me would have no business riding a stiff spring, as he was about 160lbs. my thinking right now is that it is the linkage, and i very much hope it is, because thats cheap and easy to fix i already played with the rebound and such and there is no major change. the bike was well taken care of by the previous owner and he seemed to know quite a bit about the bike, so i dont know whats up.
