ADJUSTING THE ENDURO'S SUSPENSION
I'm researching how to "soften up" the suspension on my wife's Renegade 800 Enduro. I read your article, ENDURO SUSPENSION CONFUSION By: Mark Lester, Photo By: Mike Lester 3/30/2018. The sled has 1400 miles on it. I have changed nothing on the sled except the air ride, everything is set on the softest position.
The sled overheats unless the trail conditions are IDEAL and the snow flap never gets close to the ground. I am 230 lbs, my wife is 220 ready to ride. I feel the suspension moves very little when it is set on 1, if I set it to 3 I feel a little difference.
Thanks for your inquiry!
Sounds like you may need to bump the rear torsion spring preload up a bit on the rear arm to establish a slightly higher static ride height. Then you can use number 2 thru 5 depending on the trail and speed you're riding.
The torsion springs can be bumped up twice - try just one bump. What disturbs me is the overheating problem. If the sled is full soft and set on "1" it should be sagging way low - as a result of the rider weights you have indicated.
If its way low then the snow flap should be close enough to the snow to capture it and shoot it back into the tunnel. This overheating issue is cropping up more and more on 137s - I think it's time for some of the OEMs to use a longer snowflap on these models.
Hope this helps!
