You set the tubes in the same spot in the triples,right?Ive had bikes with the tubes lowered in the triples which puts to much weight on front end,and shortens the stroke.Feels like the front end washes left or right when pushed and the front wheel deflects and feels harsh.
Set the tubes back and set your sag,then adjust for perfered dampning.
I got faith in ya,but I have had that problem.
You still running stock rear spring?Beat spring will take it out of sag,and off set front end.
I think I got a 4.5g rear spring for that bike,stocks a 4.0g,might help.Its orange,so its gotta be a good spring.

Sounds more like they set it up for more of a B or A level harescramble rider. The faster guys seem to want a little more high-speed compression. I rode my friend Jim's 250XC 2-stroke, which he has set up for hare scrambles (he rides B250), and the thing felt like it was pounding the hell out of me. He likes it that way, and is a hell of a lot faster than I am.

The guy does good work and has made many people happy. I think I caught him at a bad week and he kinda just sent it out the door. The rear shock I was very pleased with. My neighbor, Jim with a 250 also rode the bike a lil and said the suspension just doesnt fell like it's working. so off to GTR with em.

My front end is on the bench.I don't even have the time to swap seals,and change fluid.
Shooting for Hancock,,,got something up my sleave at work.Sooo I can race next season.
Scotty might actullay make some rides come up here soon,and get off my ass at work.

I do have to say the new Husky has that KYB open cartridge forks and once I got the compression set on both ends the other day,i felt like a pro.
