I have a 2002 Honda XR200R which I am very pleased with. I'm a casual rider of a local MX track as well as trails and woods, but mostly the track. My problem is, I bottom out on some of the jumps, I'm not interested in another bike, I like this one. I don't compete, and I'm 42. My question is: are there any upgrades or things I can do to my stock suspension, front and rear to help out my problem? I'll do the work myself, I'm pretty good at this kind of stuff, besides I enjoy doing it. I've done what the book says, (increase air to the forks and increase preload to the rear) but it still seems to bottom. Oh, I weigh about 170 lbs. Hope there is some help out there for me! Thanks.
