My STRONGEST recommendation is to bring it to one of the sponsored shops and just have them gove it a once over. Ill bet ya that the fork oil has never been changed. Its pretty much a night and day difference. You have to think that the bike was probably assembled by a guy making minimum wage. I think its better learining your bike when you know everything is right than learining on a bike that isnt set up right.

My recommendations:
  • have your forks serviced
  • make sure your rear spring is for your weight
  • have someone who knows what they are doing set the suspension up (sag, etc).
Then, learning your bike is going to go SO MUCH EASIER. I remember when I first bought my 636, a frined of mine jumped on it and said, "DUDE..How can you ride this thing!" Him and I are the same size. I took it in and had the same stuff done..I got the bike back and it was like a veWHOLE NEW BIKE.. Where do you live and we can suggest a place..
