no idea. are you on flat ground??Has anyone had issue with the rear suspension on the 500. the problem is no ability to carry weight. lift by hand to max extention and let go and it drops 5 inches lay ur hand on it and goes to bottom of suspension. check springs even tried RR springs and same results. shock seems fine, i know it has no direct weight carring ability but everything seems fine. sled has 1500 miles on this year. can't see anything. cat said check z bar but this suspension does not have the z bar that can flip like the old zr did. my 130lb son stands on running board and the snow flap is on the ground.. no dumb questions here because i feel stupid i can't see the problem. when discovered was back from a 125 mile hard ride on rougher trails
i have the front skid spring just over half tight and the straps are just loose when sitting on floor with no weight on sled. then i run a little more on the ski's. but maybe my throughts are wrong. i'm leaning towards the shocks also, i think everything is right but thinking and being is two different things.:Bangin: so i think a shock from the RR will be tried next. then if that is the problem i think a full set of evols are in the furture. i love the sled up to this and i love the evol shocks. saying all this my son rides this and weighs in at about 125 to 130, thats y i can't understand the issue with so little of miles.
Yup, wasting money when he needs it in the back.dont bother doing evols until you upgrade to 600 rear shocks. They will out power the stock 500 rear shocks.

Have you valved for your weight yet? Also were are your transfer coupling blocks set in the back?
I know everyone loves when the skis come up like a drag car but if your going to ride this sled for what it was made to do, bang the bumps, the couplers need to be set for the lest amount of movement. This will also help with the sled returning all the way up too! Try the coupler block adjustment and let me know what happens.
That mid shock if you have to much spring pre-load it will bind the spring and rotate around the mid shock making feel like your riding a rocking horse down the trail. Just keep that in mind.
If you think RR shocks are going to be any easier your wrong. Those 500 rear shocks are really good, I recommend try valving for your weight and riding style, call carver performance. You can't make a sled ride great for you and your son un-less your within 25 pounds of each other.
