Re: RZR XP -4- 900 ride review from KOA

Guys, What did you use to adjust the preload? No tool in the tool kit that looks like it will fit.

Also, My doors did not arrive so waiting at least another week to get them put on. They may ship today.

A screwdriver. Jack up the rear, take the load off the springs and you can almost do it by hand.

Thanks for all your help Frank. I made these adjustments last night ans I'll try them out this weekend in the desert. Thaks--Nate
Everything was great, bottomed the rear on 1 landing so I'll add just a little back to the rear coil. Rear is about 1/2" preload now, it was about 1 1/4" stock. I'll try it at 7/8"

Re: RZR XP -4- 900 ride review from KOA

How fast are you going through those whoop trails? I ride in river bottom/desert mostly and am having trouble with bottoming out a lot. I ride about 40-45 through some pretty decent sized whooped trails. I haven't adjusted pre load but I had to make mine stiffer. I know nothing about settin up suspension though so any help would be appreciated

You need to jack up the rzr and adjust the preload on the springs first .Try putting a 1/4 of preload on the rear springs first and try that .

Re: RZR XP -4- 900 ride review from KOA

So why would I have to add preload and you remove it? Am I just in harsher stuff or am going faster then your riding? Also why only adjust preload in the rear and my front? My back end already likes coming off the ground on some whoops

You were carrying a lot more weight than me . You will have to do the fronts . I said stat with the backs first.
