Weight transfer?

So lately when I get on it hard I feel like the bike is squatting more than usual...
Tire pressure is fine but even in first instead of coming up it just squats.
Any reason as to how all of a sudden the bike seems squat like that?

Have you recently done maintenance on rear?
Your chain to tight?
Clutch slip?

The base model forks are known to lose all damping. Can happen suddenly or gradually. The entire forks will be replaced under warranty and you won't have any further problems with them.

Really? That just shows a complete lack of understanding about what would happen if the forks had actually lost their damping, which is far from clear in this instance. If the damping had actually gone, the forks would top out more quickly, increasing weight transfer and the bike would be more wheelie prone, not less. Plus the front end wallowing and diving would be a lot more noticeable than a perceived increase in rear squat under power. Could be something as simple as his springs settling and needing to reset his sag. No way to know with the info given so far.

10K miles in and still waiting for my forks to croak; guess I should be disappointed!

I never thought to reset sag. As far as dampening, I have noticed no increased dive under braking.
