Questions about Suspension and Springs
since 1 week i own a Scrambler 1000XP. After a few rides i started to play around with the suspension settings.
Just for my couriosity i wanted to lower the height as much as possible.
But at a certain point the spring looses the pre tension and its not possible to go further down in with the front (backside i didnt test).
I know, these machines arent build for that but i wanted to use the whole thread range if possible.
Then i started to read across the net to find some information about that matter.
There isnt really much but some Elka Suspension but that would be a very expensive solution.
F.e. I found a "Double Spring Kit" for the Polaris RZR 800S which also has the Podium X 2.0 Shocks.
But there is nothing like that for the Scrambler. I thought there would be something similar to the RZR Kit, but no.
(Would the RZR spring kit fit the Scrambler? Are they the same dimensions?)
I did write a email to a guy who makes spring kits, not for the Scrambler in particular but other Polaris Models, and he said if i could tell him the spring
rate that i disire then he could make a double spring kit for me.
I told him that i just want to be able to use the whole range of thread given and maybe slightly stiffer spring.
But it seems that this is not enough information for him as he repeats that he need the rate for Initial and Secondary spring.
So i started to search after some figures i could work with but its really tough for someone who has no experience on this subjekt.
I guess its no option for me as i cant figure out the rates for my self. It just wouldnt make sense.
Another option and maybe the cheapest is to shorten the piston. But as this is irreversible, i would be my last choice.
I hope someone here can help me out with this problem and i´m looking forward to your answers.
