you must be riding very low in the stroke, you need the right springs for your size.

sorry to sound blunt, but either buy the right springs, or loose 80lbs- this is the only way you will get your suspension to work right.

I agree 100%. If you think the KTM was nice, you should have tried it with the correct springs...assuming it had stock springs...

The Suzuki needs somewhere in the .48-.50 fork spring rate and 5.5-5.7 shock spring. Depends on how much gear you wear/carry.
