Polaris Xtra 10

My '98 xcr has X-tra 10 suspension. I bottom it out several times when i hit big bumps. The guy i got it from was about 150, and i am about 240. My dealer said that the only adjustment for this was to buy the heavier gauge spring for the back. Is this the only way? Thanks for your help!

I'm 260, mine is 4 years old, and I rarely bottom out. Is the torsion spring on the highest setting? And, where are the scissor stops set at?

Yes, that is the only way after you run out of adjustment on the blocks. At 240 I eat a set of torsion springs per season.

Polaris offers heavier spings for the X-10 with square wire springs; they also do the same for the round wire by offering heavier wire diameters, your dealer's manual has a listing. Also run the dampering screw on the base of the rear shock in all the way and then back it out to 1/4 turn. Try that before changing springs. I also understand that on the 2000 suspensions Polaris says you can change the angel relationship between the two ends of the spring to increase the tension; this requires heating them up with a torch. You could try that on yours before replaceing them.
