Question 2 Quick Questions

Hello my friends!

Is there any way (aftermarket wise) to get the parking break back to full functioning condition?

And I do a ton of woods trail riding and train trackside riding (whoops galore) Is there any way to soften up the ride? I mean like crazy plush. Even if it comes to cheap mods, anything will do as I cannot afford a full or rear setup right now.

thanks guys for making life that much easier!

!st what is wrong with the Brake?
2nd have you dumped all the preload? really best I've seen is to change the shocks all around, but that is expensive.

Its amazing how far a KFX 90 will fly if you go fast. 15' is her current record.

Is there a way to do that with the stock shocks?

No, I didn't mean put the front on the back and rears on front...hmmmm...? I meant loosen the springs all the way to the top. but I think that would mostly give you a lower ride height. anyone try it? Or get AMarket shocks saw some on ebay $600 fronts. not my plan either.

My quad came with the shocks all the way backed off. I road it like that for probably almost year. Then adjusted front 1/2 way and rear's 1/3. But now I have the ds450's on front. As far as going through the whoops, move rider weight to rear and let front tires float over the top, staying in the gas just like dirt bikes do it. At least it works for me!

I can tell you how to make it"crazy plush" cheaply , but not sure it will actually be what you need. I changed the springs on my stock shocks to the front springs from a Z400. with my weight(280) it lowered the ride height by about 4 inches. But it made it "crazy plush". but be aware it also made it 50" wide. if you are interested then do a search for durablue sway bar in product reviews. I did a write up there that included the spring change.
