Maybe your sag is light, maybe you have too little rebound, maybe you need a stiffer spring, maybe the shock is just worn, maybe....maybe...maybe....

We need more info about your weight and jumping ability.

Well, there's a bunch of things to figure out first.

1. when was the last time your suspension was serviced, thats the most important thing to figure out. When and by who?

2. Does your bike have the stock springs still? Has it been resprung?

3. What do you mean by 0-35? Is that the height you are jumpin? If your jumpin that high and flat landin no suspension in the world is gonna help you there. Are you hittin a ramp to a landin? What type of hits are you doin?

Your weight is fine for the stock spring and you are not jumping far at 35 ft so I would say to work on your technique and start with landing while on the gas and on the backside of a jump. maybe add some rebound to the shock to slow it's return down some.

On any bike that is a couple years old you should always start with figuring out when your forks and shocks have been serviced. Adjusting your suspension will do absolutely nothing if your fork oil is clapped out and low, same thing with your shock. A blown bladder or out of spec oil will definately make your shock feel springy. There are a bunch of ways to set suspension up for riders and riding style.

First let us know where you are on figuring out your last suspension service. Then we can go through adjustments that will help :thumbsup:
