2001 Srx 700 Suspension

Hey, I have a 2001 SRX. As most people know they are a great sled but I have actually never road it, I just picked it up at the end of last season and just about stole it. I have asked around and ppl. say the sled is sick but the suspension isnt all that hot. I really cant afford the ohlins 10 or even a 12 inch suspension increase. I was also told that if I were to jump all the way to 12 the sled wouldnt handle like it's suppose to. Here is what I have done. I have installed a very heavy duty rear spring. I was told it's a waste of time to revalve this suspsension. Any feedback is appreciated. Should I do more than just the rear spring for the cost????

I had an 01 srx an i can tell you for certain hose things rock, by far the best sled i ever had & also the fastest.30 000 km's and no problems to speak of.make sure you run a good quality oil(klotz or something similar) and clean you power vavles often. check the W arm at the front of the rear suspension they are known to crack, as far as jumping its not made for that its a groomed trail sled, if you insist on jumping with it, check totally yamaha. im sure someone there can help you

Srx

Ya the powervalves are cleaned. I am running 2 S Yamalube, would you suggest that or would u suggest Klotz. The klotz is got a sweet smell, but I mean whatever you Yammi guys think. So pretty much leave it the way it is??? I mean i bought the sled cuz it was a smoking deal and it my spair. My sweetheart is a 2005 RX- Warrior. THANKS

As long as you clean your powervavles on a regualr basis(around 500 miles) yamalube should be ok) i went through a ton of power vavles & cables because when they gum up they will strecth the cables & cause them too break & or fray. the 2001 srx was & still is the fastest stock yammy ever, it'll spank your warrior.

Powervalves

Well I actually took the sled in to someone who knew more about it than me to do the powervalves. I actually just came aboard Yamaha from Arctic Cat. What should I do to clean the powervalves in the right manor? Do you have any special way or fasion on how to do this? Thanks
