I need help! how can I make the RM 80 suspension able to handle big jump the forks are so soft it is hard to control the rear shock is not that bad but still bottoms on the face of jump it is really bad and landings. What mods should I do? And if any owners of this bike can help. It is my sisters bike she is 122 ibs and 5'7 novice.

Install Race Tech Gold Valve emulators; they will greatly improve the action of the forks.

One question though... Your sister could easily move up to a 125. If she is a beginner skill rider, a RM125 will be a good choice.

Hey thanks we will try that. she will probaly move up to to a 125 but now I don't think is strong and experianed enough for one. She was thinking of a KX 100

Joe is right, Plus I would add firmer springs front and rear. The litttle RM's stockers are just not firm enough.
Regards,
Jer
