Yo new here. I just put 1bar of air into the front forks as i was reading this. Stifened the forks up nicley ill let the pressure out in a week and see how it feels. But i can say already with the extra bar in each fork heavy breaking feels better with less dive in the front.

CAREFUL!!! Yamaha says not to put more than 5.7 p.s.i. of pressure in those forks. Even with 3 or 4 p.s.i., people are still having issues with fork seals leaking. To put 14.5 p.s.i. in them is WAY too much.
   The best thing to do is to put the proper fork springs in for your weight. Then, you adjust the damping to control the springs.
