No. Coupling blocks are seperate from the spring blocks. Check out the picture below.Originally posted by otterbob@Jan 6 2003, 08:10 AM
ive got a standard F7 and would like to stiffen the rear suspension. the coupling blocks have to be adjusted to tightend the tension on the torsion spring right? what else can be done to stiffen the rear?

I agree with your comment on the RX1, my riding bud has one that if he gets the whole shot I cannot get by him, If I get him out of the hole he doesnt get by me. They are very close. I did beat a cluthed ZR8 with V-force reeds, but not by a lot.

Bosssho, is your F7 a Snopro? Mine is, and gets the holeshot everytime. With the limiter straps in the stock (longest) position, it would wheelie like crazy, even sometimes with half throttle when on hardpack. Putting the coupler blocks to #2 or #3 helped a bit to keep the skis down, but the real fix was to pull the limiter straps up one hole to the middle one. This fixed the huge wheelie problem, but the sled still pushed in soft or broken snow, so I left the coupler blocks at #2. It wasn't until yesterday when I finally got some ski bite with the Powder Pro skis that I decided to try and back off the coupler blocks to #1. When I did that there was no increase in wheelies, so I took the coupler blocks out entirely. Now I have good holeshot, great ski bite on all surfaces, and a softer ride It's like the best of all worlds. I'm VERY pleased with my F7's handling at this point!
