I ride a 250f and have trouble with harshness during Hare Scrambles-I am a 160 lb 40+ C rider -I have decided to revalve but don't know which route.Should I buy and install Gold Valves with .42 springs up front or should I send it all out? If I send it out should I go with a local guy with Florida H.S. experience or send it to one of the big shops? Will Gold Valves be better than stock valves reworked? I like the idea of being able to change the valving myself ( Gold Valve ) and I'm not afraid of the installation but Gold Valves for front and rear and springs for the front are close to the price of sending it off and not having to touch it .Also Race Tech says .42 springs are needed, big suspension shops say stock is ok ( all agree that shock spring is ok for 160 lbs).I would appreciate any input-THANKS I would also like to add the suspension feels great during moto at local MX track and sand whoops and big hits during a H.S. are not a problem. Can I make it plusher without losing these attributes? Again I can tell you in the roots this thing will jar fillings - is it my settings? forks are all the way soft as are theshock settings.Rebound is full hard up front and slower than stock in the back. The shock doesn't feel too bad, should I just get the .42 springs? (stock is .44 )HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
