Make sure you are properly sprung for your weight. Need to achieve proper sag range of around 100mm.

Consider getting the suspension revalved for your weight and riding style/ability.

yeah the sag on my bike was all jacked up, i am 6'0 190 and the guy that rode it before was 5'3 125. i blamed it on me, but when i cahnged the sag, i had a whole different bike. try that 100mm out. it will most likely be a huge improvement

That's mean

Not trying to be rude, I was once a 130 lb dude too. People have it right about getting your sag set, But he made it sound like the bike was controlling him too much, which a bit of weight and strength would help him take control of it. But then again there are a few advantages to being 130 lbs.
