Ok guys went riding today.Took the bike off trailer set it on stand get it running etc. Hopped on it to ride and it seemed like i had no suspension in the rear, it was stiif as a board it sagged down very little and would not pop back up. As i rode it loosened up a little but no where near normal??? i rode monday and it was fine.I dont hit huge jumps etc just small ones here and there. i have never messed with settings. I ride trails with a lot of whoops though but not real fast
bike is a 96 yz 125 any thoughts on what it could be??
thanks in advance sparky
