The first thing you need to do is change your springs, as you are too heavy for the stock springs. Your stock front springs are .41's, and I would recommend .45's- your rear spring is 4.6kg/m, and recommended is 5.1. If you ask, you may find another TT'er with some for sale. An oil change on both ends would be a good idea, too, based on the age of your bike- if you are handy, you could do this yourself. Go to www.motocross.com/motoprof, then click on motorcycle tech center, then suspension tech center- in here you will find detailed instructions and pictures on rebuilding both your forks and shock (KYB, or Kayaba). Then, once you are all done, try some baseline settings, like maybe- forks 12 comp., 8-9 reb., and shock 12 comp., 6-8 reb. and visit www.mcxtreme.com/suspension or www.mx-tech.com, and print off the suspension setup tips. Take these with you to your local riding area, and you will have a good idea on what to do to set your suspension up properly. Have fun! :thumbsup:
