I have the Atomik Reign Bigfoot 160cc.

I want to know how best to stiffen the forks as when I jump the bike not only are they too soft but the also bottom out.

Also what mods or upgrades have other riders used on these bikes?
Cheers

You might be able to change the fork oil to something a bit thicker also maybe a small spacer in the spring to add a bit of preload
Or just upgrade the whole front end to some high quality forks the reign ones are pretty bad so is the rear shock

Any recommendations or both for oils to use or new suspension setup?
Thanks

Not to sure but I would think the oil they put in them would be cheap nasty crap so anything would prob be an upgrade it’ll be a bit of trial and error but I’d start with a 10 w fork oil and go from there brand is up to u but like I said any would prob be better than what’s in them
As for new forks I’ve got no idea what’s out there I e got DNM forks on my pitty and there good for me but hard to find any info about them
There are a few reputable ones out there but you’ll be spending some hard earned on the front of your bike
I’d start with having a play with what u got first and if something popped up within a reasonable price then why not

Welcome to miniriders mate your best trying a different fork oil coz the stock oil in them isn't the best 10w is thicker if that doesn't help you might have to get some new ones depending on your budget there a lots of decent forks look at some gpx forks on Dhz they also sell good priced rear shocks too then you have fast ace and marzocchi on the more expensive side
