I have the fronts in the middle cause at the highest setting, the front end would push into corners and was very unstable. I set the rears on the highest to lessen body roll and cause the suspension doesn't preload as much when I do long wheelies. Plus I like to power slide around corners and the firm rear end helps.
I have mine set at 4 all round, it helped take body roll out of it when cornering and it provides a smoother ride with out making it harsher. I weigh 185lbs and I like it a lot at the 4th setting. I may try the 5th or highest setting soon just to see if there is a difference? I am just dreading adjusting the rear shocks again! Pain in the "A" double "S"....Irv
Have min all around on the lowest setting (softest). Do mostly techinal riding so im looking for the softest and the most travel in the suspension I can get. Even when I ride on the trails my speed never really excedes 30 mph and it still works good for me. When I go riding its usally me and my wife and she really does not to like to go to fast so we just cruise around. Used to have my Raptor when I felt the need and would head out to the track but recently sold that so have to see what happens, I might end up bumping them up a notch.
Mine are set at 3 in the fro9nt and 4 in the back and I run 4 1/2 pounds of air in the tires. That's just what works for me.
I also adjust them according to the type of riding I'm going to be doing and what kind of load I'm carrying.
Mines 5 in the back and 4 in front. I have to keep turning them up to keep the same ride. I can forsee getting Highlifter coils in my future if they keep sagging. I like a firm ride, lots of higer speed rough trails, drag races and wheelies, that is until the swamps thaw out.
Just raise your quad up Ernest, take the wheels off, spray a good lube around the base of the shock and the shock ramp and twist real hard with a good pair of Channel locks or similar. They are a bee-atch to do but well worth it in my opinion.........Irv
I am set at 3 in the front and 4 in the rear. After riding it like that a couple of times I have decided to set them to the stiffest settings. I used to race a YFZ so I tend to ride a little hard, and probably jump the Grizz a little to much. At the current settings I bottom out if not being careful. Just depends the kind of riding you are going to be doing and your riding style Coach.
Highest setting in front & rear. I ride my Grizz like I stole it & it has to be a stiff to handle high speed bumps, jumps, & corners, plus being 6'3" 230 doesn't help either. lol. Hey this is my first post, hello fellow grizz owners.
I think i need to stiffen up my rear suspension because i have black rub marks from my tires on my rear fenders from jumping. I also have the issue of being a big boy. Guess I might just have to risk the axles coming out. I have also been thinking of upgrading the suspension if it comes to it. Possibly ELKA.
Welcome to the site golfman. This is a great site. Just belonging to this site has greatly improved my social life. This is probably the only place on earth that I have found people as addicted to Grizzlies as I am. I was noticing that when I wanted to talk about Grizzlies with my friends they had to go home, or bowling or some silly thing like that. When I would approach a table of my friends the table would clear when I started to sit down. One of my friends finally confided that I was a bore... I only have two topics...four wheeling and Grizzlies, and they are tired of hearing about it.
I guess acceptance is a part of recovery!!!
OK, OK, I should have started this with, "MY NAME IS DGR, AND I AM A GRIZZAHOLIC!!!!"
