Crazy much?

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

Well, like I said, i'm new to this IRS world, so my method is probably not the best or easiest way, but it worked....
First the rear. I losened the lock nut and spun it all the way up, till it stopped, i turned the spring load nut down till i had 1/2 inch between the nuts, then spun the lock nut down tight to the other. the front I only left 1/4 inch between, just to try and help with body roll. It really seemed to improve my understeer, I don't think there is a way to eliminate it, but I'm satisfied with the results.let me know if you find a better setting, i'm going to continue fooling with it with hopes of getting it even better without riding like it has stone wheels.

My Kenda klaws made a huge difference up front. That combined with the riding style I explained has worked really well. Anymore questions ask freely. I know EVERYONE on this site loves to help and discuss this machine. Good luck!

Yeah, i'd like to see more pics too! I think 23" tires on the front of that would make it look even better!
