Best Answer

The typical linkage suspension found on large Motocross bikes increase the amount of shock travel versus wheel travel as the rear wheel moves through the stroke. In other words, the shock travels more at the end of the travel than at the beginning. This additional movement increase the damping and spring rate to counter bottoming.
