Well no, but she's not very hard on it either. We also have the spring preload backed all the way off where there is almost no pressure on the locking collars too. I'm sure that if she was more aggresive or heavier, bottoming would be an issue.

Still lovin this little green Kawi!

A guy I just recently met helped me set up the suspension on KLX, to suit my height and weight. Kind of a stroke of luck that I met this guy through the Sportbike website I frequent...He jusy moved to BC, and was a Dirtbike racer back in Ontairio. He also had this little 2003 Suzuki DRZ 125 which I picked up off of him for my wife for a really good deal. I havn't had the KLX offroad since the suspension tweaking, but I am sure it'll help out a lot. The other exciting news is I am about to join the truck crowd, so I can haul the bikes around to find some new riding spots around BC. Its a 2000 Toyota Tacoma regular cab with 4 wheel drive. Now I just need a tutural on how to safely get dirtbikes up and into the bed of a truck...haa haaa! I guess its one of those trial and error things.

I ask because I am considering getting one for my wife down the road and would need to slam it pretty hard in order to make it work. Thanks!
