I bought an 18' crf 250r 2 weeks ago . Ive bee loving the bike so far , but i really want to get the suspension dialed in . I have not had the chance to get to the track since i bought it . So i have been riding some single track and firetrails behind my house . When i get up to about 4th gear pretty decent speed my front forks starting going side to side alot as in left to right and gets pretty close to washing the front end out . What adjustment should be made to correct this ? rebound ? lower or raise the forks in the clamp ? Everything is stock right now i have not adjusted anything .

Edit : i have set my sag before experiencing this

Set your sag, before anything.

I have the PulpMX app and in the Keefer Tested section there's tons of great podcasts. He's doing great work.

On my bike i actually corrected that by tightening the spanner nut under the top triple clamp - it had come loose over time. Check that in addition to suspension settings.
