My question is, How can I get a better resistance to bottoming with out losing the feel of my stock suspension.

I am a 140lb aggressive rider and I do alot of jumping I love the stock feel over small stuff but I need to do something to stop the bottoming.

See if your owners manual gives you a min. and a max. oil level.If your bottoming on jumps you can increase the oil level a few mm and get a better resistance to bottoming and should keep the stock feel.This would also depend on the type of fork you have either KYB or Showa.

I was going to raise the lever 5mm and see how it felt.

I forgot to tell what Kinda bike I have so maybe now someone or you have an idea about this bikes specs.

I'd try 100mm to 110mm for starters maybe go to 95mm if your still having problems, anything past that you may hydro lock the fork before the bottoming cone, if your still having problems then bump up the compression stack a bit.
