Has anyone installed aftermarket valving ? Although the the stock valving works very well, I am not all that thrilled with how it acts under very harsh almost moto like conditions. the front seems almost spongy after a few laps at the local moto track. (and no I am not talking off of jumps this thing will jump well but thats not the problem) It seems like either the oil is to lite or that as the oil gets hot the front end goes spongy. It does not happen under hard trail riding it just seems to appear after 3 to 5 laps on the moto track, not sure if it is a valving issue or what the deal is. At this point I am considering upgrading to Race Tech Gold Valves unless you guys can shed some light on this.

You have an issue with the performance of the FRONT suspension?
How do you have your rear set up? The rear is the source of all of my issues.

My rear shock has been replaced by a Race Tech G3

Your description of the front becoming spongy sounds like an oil issue to me. Admittedly, I don't know much about dirt bike setup, but my experience with other suspension would say that your oil is either getting too hot or it's foaming. Maybe try a different oil. I'm going to switch to Ohlins when I get around to picking some up. I know a race tech valve kit exists for the forks, but I'm going to play with oil first.

I hadn't seen the race tech G3 for the rear. Is that a valve kit, or is it a whole shock?

same here for me....my front seems "ok". it's not great,but seems like it's alot stiffer overall than the rear.
i'll agree with it may be an oil issue,i was already thinking on changing mine out soon.

Because my wallet was a little thin at the time and I was not happy with it from the start. I think this sums up WHY
