went out to St Anthony sand dunes this weekend and I love my maverick. Had some issues with my RPM's only around 72 to 7300 hopefully getting that fixed this week. I do have another question about the suspension I did what you guys told me. seems to work good only problem is that back end still wants to buck pretty hard. How about I loosen some of the preload and compensate with a little bit of a high speed compression will that help?

That's a silly question isn't it? Is anything really ever good enough?:big smile:
Yep!, but I'm in the same boat as you. My still bucks after removing at the compression. However, I added some 2" spacers which made it too soft so now I can put some compression back in to stiffen it up.

You can lower the rear 1" and it will help with the bucking. But it will bottom more often. So you then add some compression. I think I raised my rear preload adjusters 3/8" which equals 1" of ground clearance.

I need to do that as well.

thanks for the info, I was thinking the same thing, take a little bit out of that preload and then you can just play with the compression. I'll give her a shot.

For the dunes, driving solo, I run the pre load a bit softer than stock. I take 6 rounds out of the rear from stock, and 2 rounds out of the front. It's a little too soft with a passenger, bottoms out too much. Stock preload actually works pretty good with a passenger.
