Ride Height

  1. Place quad on flat, level surface
  2. Stand on the quad with hands on handlebars and shake it down a couple times to equalize –  do not sit down to check ride height (only stand). If using weight, then one bag on each foot pegs (piece of woods from tearing bag) and one bag on seat near front of seat.
  3. Measure under skid plate to ground under the foot peg area and under radiator area.  I try and achieve the rear number by adjusting BOTH front and rear – then adjust the front a little more to achieve the “RAKE” that I want.  “RAKE” means front is higher than the rear.  A good round number for RAKE is 3/8” to 5/8”.
  1. XC    –   Front – 7 5/8” (+/- ¼”)       Rear – 7 1/8” (-1/8, +1/4”)
  2. MX   –   Front – 7 ½” (+/- 1/8”)       Rear – 7” ( +1/8”)
  3. TT    –   Front – 5 1/2” (+/- ¼”)        Rear – 5 ¼ ” (+/- 1/8” )
  4. Oval  –   Front – 5” (+/- ¼”)             Rear – 4 ½” ” (+/- ¼”)
  5. Desert –  Front – 8 5/8” (+/- ¼”)       Rear – 8” (+/-1/8”)
  1. Take the hammer and punch to loosen the top lock ring – if threads are dirty – then you should have washed your quad!  Still a problem then lightly wire brush threads.  Now adjust to achieve the numbers above – if you are trying to get within 1/16” good luck.  The biggest adjustment we can make is our body position NOT ride height – don’t be so type A – I know because I am too.

TIP: when adjusting ride height take weight off suspension to adjust

TIP: when adjusting grab the spring with both hands and finger on ride height adjuster and turn the whole spring – much easier.

  1. Once adjusted, take the hammer and punch and lightly tighten down lock ring and your done with ride height – continue on with camber
