Hello all, time to beat the dead horse again. I purchased my 21’ mt07 in January of 2022. It had 3200 miles on it. Akro exhaust and a tune. Now that I’ve gotten comfortable with the bike and have started pushing it, I’m seeing that the front suspension feels terrible to me…. Im 5’10” at 215lbs. I live in the foothills of the NC mountains and I ride all over the mountain ranges. I prefer the twisties with a spirited throttle wrist. Issue at hand. I feel like this bike just nosedives when I start braking to approach a turn. In a way, it almost feels unstable to me. Apart from the way the front end drops due to the engine braking, I’m exploring options. The very first thing I’m going to do is add the DNA stage 2 air filter setup and have my bike re-tuned by Chris Moore of Moore Mafia. He can SOMEWHAT get rid of the engine braking with a fresh tune. I figure that’s a “two birds, one stone” approach, to see how that helps with the nosedive. I’ve been looking into cartridge kits from Ohlins and traxxion dynamics for the front forks. I’ve also read people saying that a simple swap of the rear suspension makes a world of difference. I’m quiet ignorant with suspension as a whole. What do you guys think?
