You're damn right I should have bought a ZR. Buying the ZL SS was a huge mistake. I do nothing but trail riding. I don't go ditch banging, and I'm no Tucker Hibbert. All I ride is groomed trails... and I still bottom all day long. Everything from CAT said that it rides soft until the Smartride reacts and closes the valve in the shock... then it's supposed to be even stiffer than a ZR. If that's the case I'd never bottom it. I've never bottommed a ZR sled... ever. I ride agressively, but it's all on groomed trails.Originally posted by 600ss@Jan 23 2003, 04:44 PM
The gentlemen who wants to put fox shocks in his SS should have bought a ZR in the first place. .
I'm with you on hugging the tank, it seems to help on stutter bumps taller than 6 inches. anything less, and sitting toward the back helps.Originally posted by ptzrt@Jan 28 2003, 07:55 PM
....He also installed a lenco cross shaft and removed the coupling blocks . The cross shaft increases the rear travel to 16.5"....
It does not increase travel to 16.5". It allows the rear bumper to move over a stroke that is 16.5" top to bottom, but the travel of the suspension is limited by the length and stroke of the shock. I'm sorry, but that Lennco part is a gimmick and does nothing for performance.Originally posted by ptzrt@Jan 28 2003, 07:55 PM
