does anyone know if there is a way to take out some of the re-coil on the rear shocks over bumps/woops? i almost get bucked off if i hit them too fast or hard, even hanging over the back going over them. it seems that with less rebound (extension time) it would be better. i would like to leave them stock if possible. adding nitrogen or something? i have tightened the rear springs a little would cranking them all the way down help?

Our stock shocks are crap with the only adjustment being pre-load. This is why I upgraded my shocks to Elka. I can adjust my rebound so I don't get bucked around. Good shocks make a world of difference... once you learn how to adjust them for what, that is. As far as I know, there really isn't a way to "fix" crappy shocks.

You can also look at the other stage options, this is for the stage 2 shocks.
The Elka stage 2 only comes as a piggy back and that won't work for our rear... you'd need remote rezzies. I have stage 2 plus compression fronts (not offered anymore) and stage 3 rears (also not offered anymore) I paid something like $2,300.00 for my setup direct from Elka (Did I give you a heart attack yet?)

Would stage 1 elka shocks in the front and stage 2 in the rear be good
Stage 1+R would be better for the front... But, you can't use Stage 2 on the rear as they only come as a piggy back rezzie. The rear of our quad doesn't have room where the piggy back rezzies would need to go. The only kind of rezzie that fits would be a remote rezzie type. Excerpt from Elka catalog in attachment. For the front, the DS450 shock would be better than a basic stage 1 Elka shock. Note: Slight mod to upper eyelet needs to be done to DS450 shock.

is there any stock shocks from other bikes that would be better than what we have front or rear without having a heart attack looking at the price or giving an arm or leg to buy them?

Then he is not you're average rider of a xx and kinda guessing he is faster than you ?

He needs aftermarket shocks in any shape,way or form. No OEM shock will do , The spring rates will be wrong , especially for the rears.
