Hey everyone. I've got a question for ya's. I went riding at a local practice track yesterday on my semi-new Suzuki RM100. The bike handles turns and jumps great. However, on this one straight-away with braking bumps as far up as half the length of the straight leading into the turn...The handlebars always started to jerk violently. (As in it would kick the front wheel to the left, then violently to the right and so on...) I wound up staying to the far inside in a rut with no breaking bumps because of it. The bike almost threw me a couple of times. Is this because of the fork setup, or is it something im doing wrong. (I lean far back in a semi-crouched position while using mainly the front brake w/ some rear application to keep the bike in line. Any advice is appreciated.
