94 Vmax 600 w/M-10 susp.??

I recently purchased a 94 vmax with a M-10 susp. Low miles. It seems like it is very tippy , since it sits up way higher than stock. Is there any remedies. Front tss shocks might need rebuilt? I thought of replacing skid with one from my 97 vmax, pro-action. Any thoughts

zero experience with the m-10's, but from the angle in the picture it does look a bit jacked up at the rear. would almost think you would have excessive ski pressure.

you may consider playing with the suspension adjustments a bit before tossing it under the bus. as for the fitment on the 97 and up skids, they are narrower than the tunnel. not a big deal, you will just need spacers at the mount locations.

Here is some fine tuning information I found when I put in my M-10. Hopefully this will help.

That isn't mounted correctly... The approach angle is INSANE, and I'd guess the ski pressure is way off also.

Previous owner had a dealer install it. Where can I find the measurements for mounts?

Here is a better pic, looked over the tuning from above post, every thing looks setup right. Had a chance to ride it about 50 miles. It rode great, in fresh snow, fish tailed a lot on hard packed road. Has very few studs down middle and half are worn to lug height. Is the fishtailing caused by ski pressure??or the studs?

Ski pressure, give a slight increase to the front of the skid shock preload to take a little weight off the skis.

vmax's normally sit basically level, so with yours tipped so far forwards you are going to have all kinds of weird handling going on. Yep, either reduce the amount of pressure on the rear, or increase the amount on the front of the skid.
