Everytime i hit a decent jump my bike seems to wheelie in the air, i have to pull in the clutch and slam the rear break? is this me or a suspension problem?

It could be either or. You might have too much rebound in the forks or not enough in the rear. Body positioning is a be factor for sure. Sometimes when I’m still a little timid on a new big jump I will go front end high until put more weight over the bars. It may even be the gear your in going off the jump. If you’re hi in the rpm range try the next gear up.

Might be accelerating too hard off the jump too.

I'd say make sure the rider technique is correct before you start messing with suspension:

Move your body weight more forward during jump take off.

Body placement, technique, or suspension. Watch the vid above^ Make sure you're taking the jump in attack position, leaning forward etc etc.. one of the biggest thing people do is hammer the gas before hitting the jump. Try in a lower gear as someone else mentioned. After that you can look at your suspension.
