3" of free play is a little much, but should be fine for your weight. What setting are your Torsion springs on? You can tighten them to make it sag less, or loosen them to provide a softer ride. also, you might just want to get a set of new Torsion Springs from a dealer. I imagine they are pretty worn out by now.QWIKWHIP said:Hi all, I have another question. The more I play around with this sled the more things I find to ask. lolThis is on my 99 MXZ 670HO with 3700 miles on it. I notice that on the rear suspension there is a good 3" of "free play". What I mean is that when the sled is sitting on the ground I can actually lift the rear of the sled at least 3" before the track lifts off the ground. Then when I set it back down it drops down that same 3" before the springs hold the weight. And once it's down, the remaining downward travel seems very tight. It doesn't appear to compress any more when I sit on it. And I'm about 160 pounds. Does this sound normal, could the springs be shot or could it just be way out of adjustment? Thanks in advance.
There's quite a few adjustments you can make on your rear suspension to make it ride the way you want, but the best thing you can do is wait until you get out on the trail to see how she rides.
