There is a lot of good info here.

I suggest you ride it first. Try the available adjustments and if those don't do what you want as far as comfort and handling, then identify the specific improvement you would like and ask for ways to meet those results.

I'm on my 6th and 7th SKIDOO 4 stroke The only one I put heavier rear springs on was 2013 600 ACE MXZ. At that time I was 300LBS naked. Currently I run between 270 and 275 B 4 suiting up. At 78 I don't ride as hard as I use to. My 1200 has a little too much ski pressure and the 900 is a little light on ski pressure. Biggest mods I typically have done over the years have been on skis and dually carbides,

In the early years with my Polaris 2 strokes it was a given for me, heavier rear springs right off the start. But I was all the way up to 372 LBS then B 4 suiting up.. Only time I ever got weighed was at my customers shipping scales

My 900 ENDURO is nice because it has the push button air shock adjustment.

Once again give it a try B 4 you start buying extras.

I weigh 270lbs. I bought a 2018 TNT. Ian at Monster is going to set me up with new springs and revalve on all four for under $400. Figure way better and cheaper than new shocks. Needed the revalve after first year, anyway
