Hey guys I have a 2014 KX250F with the SHOWA SFF suspension (non air forks).I started riding last year. This is my second year and ive been doing harescrambles. I finally learned how to tune my suspension to get it where I like it.My problem is towards the end of the race the suspension gets rock hard and starts deflecting off everything. So much so that I can barely ride it. Is this just normal from pressure build up or is there something wrong with the forks and shock????

It sounds like it is time for a suspension service job. These units need servicing on a regular usage time frame as the fluids do wear out.
Do you have the correct springs on the units for your weight?
When was your suspension last serviced?
