I just had my suspension revalved on my 01 yz426f. I race MX at Perris race way and LACR in So Cal (Vet Nov.). I weigh in at 250lbs fully geared. The revalve improved cornering and power delivery in the rough stuff but the bike seems to be squatting between close jumps. I videotaped my last race and it seems like the rising rate is interfering with the delivery of power on the face of the next obstacle. Its hard to feel the bike actually bottoming out with yamahas new bumpers and I love the over all feel of the suspension (I would be disapointed if the ride became harsh). My suspension guy swears I dont need heavier springs and I want to trust him but please let me know what you all think.
