Read Jme250RA 's thread.

You have to set the sag on any motorcycle regardless of playing with the valving, fork oil weights and quantity.

Better still search 'Setting motorcycle rider sag' on youtube.

What you need to stiffen the forks are fork springs that have the right KG for your weight then after you get the correct springs you adjust the preload with making new spacers.

at some point. i only weigh 155lbs, but it feels like the front is too squishy. but i wouldnt know bc this is my first bike. still feels like a dirt bike in the front. the rear feel perfect. but, what are the draw backs to stiffer? i know "bumps and such" but what about in the corners?

Setting up the suspension correctly will make the bike feel like a completely different bike " for the better". I do suspension for a living and I would have to say suspension set up is more important that more HP. Check out my page. Ask anyone on this forum how they like the bike after they set up their suspension.

Cool, The bike from the factory sags more than it should without a rider on the bike. The reason they do that is so transfers weight and makes you think the brakes are working awesome and give you a gushy ride. If you ride you'r bike like most of use do you want it to handle. With properly set up suspension the bike should not almost bottom out when you get on the front brakes. Check out Race Tech Suspension. Do a product search for the CBR250R and you can look up what springs you need for your weight. It will give you prices and you can see how much emulators are.
