this will help you get lower your ski presser if you want to go ski high take the blocks out turn the front skid spring all of the way out and the ski springs down to where they have lots of flop as you ride this will let you spring the front up using the suspension and if you need more you will need to get in to your drive clutch to get some rpm before engagement

What do you guys mean by blocks? You mean the skid extension blocks on the back mount location?

Also, all these suspension adjustments will help you ride a mean wheelie, but will make your handling and ride suck. I guess you can't have both!
