XTRA 10 SET UP

HOW DOES THE FRONT REAR SCISSOR STOP (FRSS) AFFECT THE RIDE IN IT'S DIFFERENT POSITIONS? I'M LOOKING FOR THE BEST SET UP FOR ROUGH TO AVERAGE TRAIL CONDITIONS. I HAVE A 96 XCR 600 SP AND I WEIGH ABOUT 180.
THANKS

Re: XTRA 10 SET UP

Read the following article. It explains the concepts completely, and then you'll have to tweak till you get it where you want it.

It's alot of info, but knowing how it works is important.
Basically, uncoupled gives smoothest ride and worst bump handling (all blocks on low), fully coupled sucks up bumps and gives a stiff ride (all blocks on high). That's why you'll still have to tweak.

Re: XTRA 10 SET UP

I have the same sled and weigh about 195.Last year I found that the rear suspension was way too stiff for me,even with the springs in the lowest setting.Also spins like hell constantly.I took my rear suspension blocks out and got a 100% better ride plus more traction with better weight transfer to the back.I would definately take the rear blocks out then turn your springs into the medium position,try it like that and you should even be able to run on the low setting as I sometimes ride my girlfreind onback(additional 110 lbs) in the medium setting with medium size bumps with no bottoming.Try it and I guaruntee you will like the ride and the better holeshot!
