OK, I was checking out my suspension settings just to see where things are. I read somewhere that you want your sag to be 30% of the susp. travel when your sitting on the quad. I fully extended the suspension, then fully compressed it using a ratchet strap, and got a travel of 8.5". Polaris claims 10" so maybe the difference is the bumpstops? Anyway, when I am sitting on the quad there is about 7.5" of sag! That only leaves 1" of compression travel availible and that seems rediculous when polaris claims 10" of travel. Everything is at stock settings in the rear and I weigh 185 lbs what do you think?

Anybody? Seems like too much sag. Before going to the badlands this weekend I turned the rebound knob 10 clicks clockwise and it seemed to ride much better.

If it's to low in the rear increase the spring preload to raise it. Check your frame angle with your weight on it from front to rear, you want the front of the frame slightly higher than the rear so you may need to set the front spring preload also.
