I recently purchased a 2002 ZR800 CCE and I am not real happy with the suspension. I feel the dial adjust on the handle bars does make any difference when adjusted. When I orginally got the sled the piggy back adjuster under the sled was set for 3. I adjusted it to 7 becuase I thought the rear suspension had to much sag in it. I am almost 200 pounds and I just can't seem to get it dialed in right and I have considered replacing the whole system. Thoughts?

Spring controls sag, shock controls spring, has it been rebuilt recently? The suspension on the zr's was pretty good, replacing it with all new will be expensive, I would have it rebuilt.

Thanks for the response. Now I am even more confused, LOL. When I am adjusting the dial adjust on the handle bars what am I controlling. I was under the impression I was control the stiffness of the shock. I noticed there was another spring under the seat. Should I adjust that and what does that control?

Just had my 02 800 cc rebuilt by Fett Bros real happy with ride and ride hight, the adjuster on the bars just controles the ski pressure the more you turn the nob in the more ski press you have just like tighting the limite straps, the cliker on the other shock controles the rate at witch the oil is moving inside the shock it self. I could be wrong, but thats the way I understand it

when looking at my dial adjust on the handelbars I can see that the line runs to the shick under my seld and not to the front shocks. They are up under the belly pan and have their own reseviors. My front resev. are not adjustable like I have seen on the SnoPro's but I was under the impression that the clicker on the bottom does adjust the flow back and forth in the shock. I am assuming that the higher the number the more stiff and the lower the number the softer. I just dont see what the dial adjust does becuase to me it doesn't appear to do anything?

The adj. on the bars are for the front shock on the skid that puts more (or less) pressure on the front skis the more you turn the nob the more ski pessure you have. There has been alot of trouble with that set up, water, leaks and torn lines,not to mention nomale were and tear. Think about a rebuild it's worth the $

I understand now. The more pressure you have results in better turning? What did it run you for a rebuild of the rear and front shocks?

The adjuster works great. Most just do not understand it. By screwing it down you force oil into the top of the front shock on the rear suspension thus raising the front of the skid therefore putting more pressure on the skis. And vice versa.

375$ is the base price for a stage 2 that comes with two front springs one rear coil and one rear torsion spring got to fettbrosperformance.com and check it out my sled has 2300 miles and started acting up. I'm real happy with the money spent, good guys to deal with

The Quick adjust has been explained pretty well.
What is the adjustment block on the rear springs set at. There are 3 settings.
If its on the stiffest you'll have to go to bigger springs. If you go that way look at 75 degree instead of the 90's.
