mx suspension question

I was wondering how much of the stroke are you supposed to use in your forks in mx. I had a couple of sketchy jumps where I let off the throttle to early amd landed nose first. Im using almost al the stroke exceot for an inch and a half. Thoughts???

If you're landing a pretty good jump nose first and still have a lot of travel left over you're probably sprung/valved a bit too stiff.
That said, most forks will bottom internally with about a 1/2" to 1" of fork slider still exposed.
