I was looking for some shock setting ideas for my Maverick 1000XRS. I will be running in the dunes at glamus.

Welcome. Now I'll be the jerk that says it...lol. Use the search funtion. There are a few threads that will get you about as good as you can get the stock shocks.

I was gonna post Alex's default settings but wasn't sure if the duners use the same setup or something else…..Don't you guys also use less pre-load to lower it as well???

I do. Can't speak for the rest, but yeah Alex's (AReed) setup with about 6 rounds out of thr rear pre-load and 4 rounds out of the front.

I add some compression and rebound for the dunes. It helps with the g-outs.
I only adjust the comp until I only bottom out occasionally . I have the rebound closed off with the pre-load set softer than stock. I sacrific a little ground clearance, but I don't worry about that too much in the sand

Guys for what it's worth. I dropped my ride heights down 1/3 inch on the collar, about a inch overall and it worked allot better over stock. It really Settled it down in the whoops and when turning sharp it rotated smoother and not as quick.. Think I was all the way in on rebound and all the way out on dampening as well. But now I have AReeds duel rate and revalve setup and it's even better. 8)

If I remeber correctly, from factory specs, I dropped the front from 3.3XX" down to 3", and the rear from 4.2XX down to 4". made a big difference in the whoops and chop. Rebound is closed off, and compression gets adjusted accordingly to terrain. That seems to work descent as a solo rider but is a little soft with a passenger

I'm with ya Brayla. I was about to pull the trigger on the revalve from Alex, but opted to get an STM secondary instead. Spent too much on this thing already. Maybe after tax returns, or better yet...X-mas is coming...
