Fe 350 2013 rear suspension kick back

Can anyone offer some advice on why I get the rear end kicking up when I go over most jumps rode a motor x track at weekend and felt like I was ridding a wild bull getting nearly buck off at old stage. I have to let off the power early and ride over the jumps to stop the kick back when I leave a jump thanks phill

Lots of things but first see if the Rebound damping of the shock is too soft
Thanks from tourist

Yep!

Is there by any chance a heavier-than-stock rear spring on it?

Mine was the same and had a stronger spring. I replaced with standard, turned down the compression damping and up with rebound. Now it does sharp jumps and rutted hillclimbs much better

I don't think so when I bought the bike I had 3 diarys from the last owner and one before on when he rode how long for when he did oil changes, tyres, etc nothing on there about changing the springs

Hi
I race an FE350 2013 which I've owned since new and have tried several settings to try and find the best setup. I have to say that I have always been happy with the rear suspension.
I'm sure that there are far more experienced people posting on this subject, but through trial and a lot of error I feel I have found a good setup for this bike.
Obviously the thing to check first is the suitability of the spring.
I will dig my info out tomorrow and post my settings if that would be of assistance.
Regards David

Hi
I have an FE 250 2013.
My settings on the rear are:
Comp 15 klikks out
Reb 15 Klikks out
HS 2,1/4 turn out
Free sag set to 109mm
This made my bike super smooth on jumps and hillclimbes.
On the front i have:
Comp 10 klikks out
Reb 14 klikks out
5mm dropp on the forks

How long sins you had service on the shoks ?
