OK...I got what I have found to be a real good setup for "MY" riding style. Now I would say that I ride like an idiot sometimes....faster than I should be and all over the trails and ditchs and 70/80 over moguls and so on.

I tried the loosy goosy thing...NO WAY!

Here's what I found to be good...
Front shock set with 3 1/4" of threads showing
Front rear skid shock set with 1 1/4" threads showing
Rear spring preloads on 2 or 3 (it depended on if it was later in the day when the trails got hammered on) jumping drives (3!)
Coupling blocks set on 3...THIS FOR SURE CUTS THE WHEELY KING THING DOWN!

now if your just touring around this will not work, but if you are like me...you will love it.....

Snowdog, you on a std or snopro? I also tightened my front ski shock springs from 2 1/2" to 3" of threads on my std. It didn't raise the ride height; still rides as smooth as anything I've ever riddin' in the front end; and it got rid of some of the "Cadillac" chassis roll. I'm sure the tighter front springs should help give a better bite in snow (whatever that is) conditions as well! -- Roy

SNODOGG,

That's interesting because when I have my front skid shock(F7 SnoPro) adjusted to where it has barely enough tension to hold the retainer on, it has 1 1/2" threads showing. If I were to set mine to 1 1/4" threads showing, the retainer would absolutely fall out...... :blink:

YES, in fact I was used tp my M-10 in my 98' ZR and was tightening that up and not getting what I was after. I then noticed a hugh gain in the fast moguls and driveway jumping when I played with the rear spring blocks....thoughs little triangles make a big differance in ride.
