I weigh about 205,if there is anyone close to my weight on the forum that has a good setup on their suspension I could use some help. I rode about 15 practice laps at a MX track today and it just seemed a little harsh, then again it was the first time I've been on a track in over 20 years so it could just be me. I'm trying to come out of retirement to do it with my 13 year old kid so I need all the help I can get. thanks

Before you make any judgements about the suspension make sure it's totally broke in. I have about 8 hours on my bike an it finally is starting to feel the way it should. I'm not sure what level you are but you might need stiffer springs. I'm a 165lb intermediate and should invest in a stiffer set.
