I learnt this from a previous sponsor of this forum and learnt more about suspension setup in one email than I ever did in the pages of any atv magazine. Just a pity that he let alot of the members down with his rear shock conversion. I owe alot to him.
Thanks Lee.... Very true. I learned this by adjusting my compression on my Elka s3 rears... then adjusting my rebound... then having to go back to the compression because the rebound made the compression too soft.

I like being able to adjust rebound on my rear shocks because I don't want my ass end to pogo around from no dampening of rebound.

Even good shocks will feel like crap if they are not set up right for the riding conditions. I am still learning my shocks and what to adjust for what riding conditions. I think I'm lucky in having friends with the knowledge willing to help me learn... Ed Teixeira and George from Precision Racing.
