hey everybody, I sat on my buddies yz 125 last night and it is WAY stiffer than my ktm exc 125. Is there any way I can make my bike's suspension a little stiffer? I just feel way more comfortable on his yz with than the ktm?
By the way, my bike is a 1998 KTM exc 125.

Any advice would be awsome.

First find out what you really NEED your suspension to do for you before you start making your suspension stiffer. Check out the Suspension Q & A with Jeremy Wilkey forum on this site, and also perform a search pertaining to suspension setup. If you just make your suspension stiffer you are likely to go bouncing right off the trail. That's no fun.

Im not really sure because I just bought my KTM 200 exc like 5nights ago. But on the right side of my bike there is a knob right below the seat (obviously) and it adjusts the stiffness of your suspension with a simple twist.
