For mx and jumping, my vote is for the Elka's. I ran 10 laps at a local mx track with the stock suspension and paid for it the next 3 days

Stage 2 are a waste of time,money and energy !
Anything you do to the front end will help, kinda a bandaid to BP.

I hate to say it as replacing shocks , taller tires and swaybar will do "Jack Shit" on youre turns ! Unless you change the castor ,

Really??? That last statement you made Baxter I hate to say is "jack shit"! Once I switched to an aftermarket swaybar and tires I got rid of my front end push and made my turns waaaaaay tighter and faster

Get the elka's and some of Ed's upper a-arms. The bike has enough power already and your not gonna gain a whole lot with just the big 3. Plus your a pretty light guy so you don't need the extra power like us heavier guys do. The shocks will make your landings softer and the a-arms will allow you to adjust your caster to help get rid of some of the push.
