2018 Turbo Shock Settings

Just curious what everyone is doing for shock settings on the factory shocks. i do a lot of trail riding. usually advanced to expert trails. A lot of jumping. Considering to start short track racing but don't wanna look like a full ratard when my rzr is the only one donkey kicking. Any help would be appreciated. ive been all over the place with the shocks. have not changed spring rates. maybe that's next. Thanks

Unfortunately you will never find a setting that works with those factory springs. The only solution is to change rates and go true dual rate.

If you notice, you’re riding on the main spring at all times. The uppers only come into play ~after~ you rebound from the impact/bump, which is why it feels so rough. In essence they are merely there to fill the gap the main spring leaves when the weight of the rzr is off the ground.

I went through the same dilemma as you before I upgraded with ST gold edition. Night and day.

You need to call them to purchase because they tailor the spring rates for your riding style and total weight. To get the “gold edition” with the revalve as well you have to send in your shocks too. They will install springs for free though.

Re: 2018 Turbo Shock Settings

Really is disappointing how the XP jumps in stock form. I mean itís downright dangerous to hit anything more than a small jump. Seeing as how my machine will never see ďbig airĒ here on the east coast, I do find myself wondering if Iíd have been better off with an S1000 at times...well, my buddy is picking one up this weekend so I guess Iíll find out lol.

Re: 2018 Turbo Shock Settings

Some of the jumping issues are driver error.

You need to make sure you stay in the gas all the way through the jump. If you let off too soon, the nose will dive.

Yeah I get that. Iíve tried hitting jumps every way you can think of. Staying on the gas definitely helps, but it still kicks pretty bad. Plus you donít want to be spinning tires too fast when you land. Kinda sucks when trail models can hit water bars faster than the XP...
