I need to do a little research myself. My forks bottom very easily. Part of the problem is my big @$$, another part is I'm guessing stock springs and oil. Going ot order springs very soon, and need to change the oil while I'm at it. I need to find out the correct oil level or amount to out back in.

+1. I'm with ya. Mine don't bottom out, they just don't feel quite right. I figure that they probably have the stock oil in them, and the stock oil is shit. So gonna change it for piece of mind.

Got an XR video for you guys. Nothing exciting, just some gravel road riding. It's my first time using my new GoPro, so give me some tips.

Bonebag, do you have an FCR? The stock XR650R carb doesn't have a hot start button or lever. Maybe you mean the decompression lever?

Have you tried kicking it over with the throttle WOT without all the clearing kicks and stuff? That works perfectly on my dad's XR and gets things going much more quickly.

I'll check the paperwork for when I had mine done - they're brilliantly plush, yet firm. I remember him mentioning a fairly thin viscosity oil...but they were revalved and resprung as well.
