I am just curious. Do the front forks on the 06 YZ450F's have a reputation for being soft? I just got this bike so I am still trying to get used to it and get the suspension where I want it, but I am having a hard time getting the forks dialed in like I want them to be. They seem to bottom very easily. It's not a harsh bottoming but it's seems like they bottom more than they should. I have checked my spring rates and according to race tech I am where I should be at 175 lbs. but could almost stand to go up one spring size. I have the comp at 9 clicks and the rebound at 7. I started with the factory settings which were 11 comp and 7 rebound, which seem a bit weird but whatever. Rebound seems good but compression sucks. If I can't get this sorted I'm going to change my fork oil and see if that helps. I am by no means a pro rider, so I tend to make some mistakes from time to time. I guess the biggest place where the bottoming irritates me is if I land a jump with the nose tilted down just a bit too much it will bottom. I'm not talking about panic grab nose down, I'm just talking about landing with the front wheel first.
