Ok, Im pretty sure I have the sag set on the rear shock the way I want it, but I havent messed with the front yet. I have the back set about medium/soft, so should the front be the same? Right now Im thinking it needs to be softer. Its kinda rough going over small to medium sized bumps. If my RMX is anything like my dads 97 yz250 was, it needs to be softer. It was set almost perfect, it would glide right over anything, you could hardly feel the little jumps and bumps. Is this the difference in setting, or is it 89 vs 97 suspension? I know mine wont be as good as the yz, but Id like it to be close.
