What would be the difference in feel between heavier springs or a higher oil height? I know oil height affects the last 1/3 or so of travel, but a spring also gets stiffer as it moves through the travel. I put some heavier springs (.44 to .46)in my 04 YZ250 and it does not dive enough in corners to make the front end bite like I like it. I use an o-ring around the tube and I'm getting full travel. I have mixed rates before (.44+.46 makes .45) and have not had any problems, but I wonder if a lower oil height with the .46's or higher with the .45's might do the trick. Any suggestions?
