Rider sag

Anyone know the proper way to set sag on the xx? I know you set preload by taking measurements while on and off the bike. My thing is that my preload is set all the way soft on all four springs and when I get on the bike it doesn't even sag down at all. Wondering about this and if I should try something to help get it setup right I'm 160lbs

I did find a little more info here on he forum about the subject. Some reason when I initially searched for sag is yielded no results. It looks like sag on a quad is different then my supermoto.

As far as I am concerned, the stock springs are WAY to stiff. I weigh 220 and couldn't get the ride height low enough either, not even close to where I wanted it. I guess you could find softer springs, but your best bet would be new shocks all around, or at the very least new shocks up front and send the rears out to be revalved/resprung.

yep, depending on budget you can get amazing results. I have new gt thunder front and reworked rear and absolutely love them. New shocks were $495, re-work dual rate setup for rear is $395. I was never a believer in what suspension cost until I bought these, it was worth every penny.

I agree the spring are quite stiff so you have to compensate it with the shocks pre load. On adjusting the preload what you stated is correct but still it depends on your preference and usage.
