it'd be worth at least trying to figure out how it is sprung. A lot of dirt bikes I think are bought and ridden with somebody's crazy set of springs on them.

I had Neil at hitchcock do mine and I think the spring changes were the most beneficial.

Default thanks!

thanks marco and Matt (I mean Martin). I'm hoping to hit IMI this weekend to get acquainted with the new ride if I can get my trailer setup. I'll ride it with the current seat setup this weekend. I probably won't even get out of 2nd gear.

I got this from a old-timer (60+) who used to enduro race it, I have a feeling it's got "somebody's crazy set of springs on them".

I'll end up going to Neil at some point.

You could try platform shoes! That's what I use.
