I am starting to try and AIR it out a little bit and was wondering if i should upgrade my shocks? Would it be smarter to upgrade front shocks from stock or get new A-ARMS?
I am jumping like 3 feet off the ground now.( I know pretty weak) but want to be safe. I dont know how much my stock shocks will take.

Any advice would be appreciated.:cool:

What shocks do you have now? Stock pogos or rezzies? I've jumped fairly high with stockers.

Yeah, I have the same bike, if you like jumping, up the pre-load in the back up higher. I personally dropped mine way down for proper sag, and it's harder but harder to tip also, but when I first got it and would jump it, when I landed it felt like I was sitting down on the couch.

This helped me immensly when I first got it. Start slow, take a few jumps and make a slight adjustment to the suspension. It's like I have a different bike, and look at it this way, new suspension is only as good as you adjust it, you'll need to know how to do this for whatever you run.
