Suspension ?'s concerns

Recommended Posts

So I've been running my new 450XCF at the track lately and I have this little concern. I'm still using the stock springs and I weight around 225lbs which I know is to much for stock suspension. That said though, I really like how the bike feels everywhere accept for when I short big jumps or flat land big TT's.

My concern here is that I'm bottoming out the suspension REALLY hard and I'm concerned that it could damage the internals. Is this something I really need to be concerned about or can the suspension handle it. And just for the record I would change the springs but I'm using this as motivation to shed some lbs. I'd rather get in better shape than bandage the issue.

You probably need to get it re-valved I am the same weight as you and I have the 2013 SX 450 and the stock spring is plenty for me, I tried a 6.0 spring and it was way too stiff
