i went riding this past saturday.im gonna start by saying,the trails i ride here in south carolina are made of sand.i tried some new settings.i dropped the air in the front tire to around 4 pounds,and went 2 clicks stiffer on the front suspention.every crash was at low speed,and was a result to the frontend washing out faster than a top fuel dragster can get down the track.im wondering if the settings i did was wrong,and if so,what should i of done instead?thanks.

4 psi is pretty low and you can lose control. If your forks are overly soft, your bike will wash badly in sand. You can run much higher (stiffer) compression and rebound settings in sand, but that will not make up for springs that are too soft.

Better change that handle until you get it fixed :)
