Question question on suspension

ElkA has 5 different stages what do the stages mean? I was told by changing my suspension it will make my 700 ride like a lexus.

Elka does have 5 different stages... or did. They discontinued a couple of their models/stages.

The key to getting your 700xx to ride better is in learning how to set up your shocks for the riding you do. You cannot just put the Elkas on and expect to have what you want... you have to learn the adjustments and what each of them do.

I have Elka and others have Fox. I love the Elka and others love Fox. So, it's your choice.
