    Cool thanks, I'm gonna try these settings out as soon as the weather turns around and let you know how it feels.

    Hi New O. I ran the front standard with the comp at 5 turns out. Rebound 3 & 1/4 turns out and spring preload and 5 & 1/2 turns in. If you over preload the front the bike will handle crap mate. The suspension can only do so much when you hit a bump. I would try what I suggest to see if its the handling you want first as you hit a bump every now and then, but you rely on the feel from the front all the time. I also ran my rear shock 2 & 1/2 turns out as the shock has way to much rebound and wound my spring up like 3-4 turns to get 30-35mm sag. This will affect the front also mate. Don't worry about bottoming out on the front occasionally as there are bump springs in your forks to stop any damage being done. I would almost put money on it though that what you felt was the rear hitting the bump and transferring the hit to the front because of the rear being so hard on high speed compression the shock actually locks up. Let me know how you go.
