Re: Suspension setting for XP 1000
I'm wondering if not all Xp1000's shocks are set the same from the factory.
Might be what ever the Home Depot day laborer at W.E. set them at when putting them together,, not anything specific. Just assembled them and shipped them.
We're 4 CC turns or 4 turns up on the rear pre-load from stock and the machine is perfect. Didn't adjust anything else. The back did drop down noticeably.
We played with the reservoir knobs are they are very effective. One or 2 clicks either way and you most definitely feel the difference. We left them at the factory setting half way.
We have Elkas on several other vehicles and adjusting the knobs are like taking asprin,, nothing changes.
I think the Elkas reservoir knobs are decoration. They ride nice though.
The WE is a really good running shock, if ya get good ones from the factory.
Quality and how long they last damfino,, but they sure run good for stock OEM.
The $20K price tag for the XP1000 is starting to look more and more reasonable when ya look at what ya get.
I can't see putting a $4K set of Kings on the XP1K. Outstanding shocks for sure,, but just might be spending over-kill.
