Hey out there. I could use some help with my Indy 500. The problem is that the suspension has no stifness. you can push the suspension down b hand and it won't come back up. It won't support any weight at all (always bottomed out). The springs appear to be fine, and there isn't any leaking evident from shocks. I want to fix it myself, but i don't want to buy any parts that don't require replacement. Any ideas? (extra 10)
I had a 98 xcr 600 with the extra 10, it had gas shocks, assuming yours does as well?? They should say on them, what type they are, check it out, if they are gas, they need to be recharged, if hydolic, just replace them, they're cheap.
You should check your rear shock if you have the one that has a little screw at the bottom of the body, It may have backed it self out. This screww adjusts the compression rate on the shock. Not sure if your sled has this or not but some did. Its a little needle valve so just screw it back in with a flat screw driver to adjust the stiffness of the ride.
If you don't have this then you either have a throw away shock or a rebuildable fox unit in there. If this is the case then take out and show your dealer they will tell you what to do.
