Well I'm new to this and have spent the last few hours searching for an answer but came up short. So here it goes... I just purchased a 2001 Yamaha WR250 and noticed that when landing off a jump (back tire first) the front seems to SLAM (hit very hard) on the ground. I took the forks in for servicing... the springs were replaced, new oil and seals set back to stock. I am 160 lbs so stock seemed to be right. However, I still have the same issue. If I land level, it is a beautifuly smooth and supple landing, but when I come down on the back tire first, the front almost seems to be without suspension. Is this right? It is so bad that I do not even want to get the bike in the air at all. Do you have any suggestions?
