2018 Argo Xplorer stiff suspension on new ATV

Recommended Posts

Is it normal for a new ATV from the factory to have rock solid suspension? My 2018 Argo Xplorer is stiff as a rock,

Usually if its brand new, it may feel a little stiff. Standing on the foot pegs/floor, can you shake the atv side to side? Looking at the ice you have there I suppose you could have frozen/stiff shock, what's the temp? I don't know much about these but some do come with shock adjustments.

temperature has been going from -16 to +5 over the weekend. it really doesn't shake much at all. I was going to try and adjust the spacers tonight. Just wasn't sure if everything was just stiff from the factory.

Might just feel like that because its new. Does it go down at all when you sit on it?

It doesnt move when i climb on. I got a response from Argo. They said the suspension was number 1 complaint.

      The VIN on my 2018 Kodiak 450 is not where it's supposed to be. I bought this used. Is there another "hidden" location where I can find it? Need the number for insurance co. Thanks in advance.

      Hi, I'm new to ATV/UTV's and am looking for any advice that would help to repair my 2018 Ranger 500.  I got it from an insurance auction and have never owned one before.
      It looks like it was sunk deep.  Found rocks and sand in the roof, milky oil in the air filter box, water in the fuse box, etc.
      So far, I've cleaned the air box out, vacuumed most of the rocks and sand, checked the engine, trans and diff casings for cracks/leaks.
      The battery would not charge while connected so I know there is some short somewhere...probably the wet fuse box.
       
      I plan on drying out the fuse box and all connectors with a hairdryer tomorrow, check the fuses, remove/dry out the ECM and disassemble/clean the air intake.  Then install the battery and see if i can get it to key on and see what kind of lights I get.
      Need to know what to expect with the engine/trans...
      Thanks.

      What do you all think about the Argo machines? They're quite interesting....
      Not saying I want to get one, but, it's cool how they can go from land to water like it's nothing!!!
