Bike: 2005 YZ125 My issues are I have harshness in the initial stroke on the front forks. When I back off on the compression the harshness dissipates but now they are too damn soft on bigger hits. Blew my left hand of the bars today on a big landing, ... more »

Since he survived the MEC crash unscathed by bailing maybe it felt like the right move?

Didn't catch that one, I caught Mookie laying down a nice one when he passed Marv ( I think) over the triple before the cluster eff ensued.

Guys with Helmets trying to slap each other in the head. So dangerous. The stiff arm that sent Ando flying looked more dangerous than anything in that whole exchange. Still, Ando went full Mouthbreather, shame because I was hoping he mentally tougher ... more »

Great info guys, I'm going to play with some oil levels and see If I can get it to behave. Thanks!

Thanks for the Info, I learned something there! I'm going to give Race Tech a call tomorrow and see what kind of plan they have. Their spring rate calculator says I need to be 1 heavier spring size up from stock, I feel like the faster I've been going ... more »

No thankfully I'm OCD and use a torque wrench on everything. I know these with this particular year and model most tuners till me Yamaha "Missed the Mark" With the forks, its the only year the 125 had them and basically the springs are short. A general ... more »

I was wondering about Valving, I doubt the internals are worn, I always have the forks done by a local guy. Last time I mentioned my issues to him he mentioned a re valve. The fork oil is an idea to consider. Can someone explain what exactly a revalve ... more »

I don't know shit, but Kenny was picking riders off pretty quick before he got to Seely. He wasn't getting by Seely as easily and maybe pushed it a bit too much resulting in the crash. Was he panicking a bit? Could he have been more patient? Maybe but ... more »

I think this weekend we learned that nothing is certain. Dungey going down in his heat race could have been just as disastrous had he been landed on. Let that happen in the main and it surely changes things up again.

It's been a while, I was thinking earlier that they could probably need a refresh. I do remember having the harshness after my last rebuild, I slowly kept going softer over a long period of time.
Added reply in a thread Fork Conundrum 1/21/2017 4:56 PM
Note, initial harshness is mostly on smaller chop and square edged stuff. .
