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.

      I have a 2018 Kodiak 450 EPS that just this past Sunday I ran through a bit of water.
      After the puddle the belt was slipping, so I pulled over and drained the ultramatic housing and the slipping problem went away. This was all in L and everything seemed to work fine. Later when I got on a road, I put it in H, but it still rode like it was in low... i.e. I had to rev it up a lot just to get to 30mph.
      When at home I pulled the ultramatic cover off to inspect, and it looked okay in there. Not much dirt, belt and everything are clean, but when I rev up the engine (with cage in place, of course), the belt doesn't get to the top of the clutch (maxes out about an inch or 1.5" from top of clutch, so maybe it is normal).. I put it back together but same thing... H seems like L still.
      Do you think the clutch needs to be further dissected for cleaning, or could this be an issue with the gear selector?

      I have a 2018 450 and the digital gause has started flashing on an off while driving. The backlit also goes on and off. It is worse when I hit the gas. The battery died a few weeks ago and I jumped it but its been fine until last night. Called the dealer and showed them a vid and they recommend replacing the gauge and its like 600 bucks. The machine has less than 100 hours on it. I would really hate to have to change it out. also the unit sometimes has trouble starting. Any ideas?

      Well, it overheated then started blowing white smoke!!
      I have it torn down & the cylinder appears to be warped. Going to have the head checked out next but in the meanwhile... Does anyone have the torque sequence/specs for the head bolts??
      TIA

      Just purchased a 450 EPS and I'm wondering about accessories. What are some good websites for aftermarket accessories? Looking for front and rear brush guards and LED lights.
      Thanks

      So I rode my 2018 Kodiak 450 through a bit of a puddle and got water in the ultramatic casing... drained the water but the quad still fails to reach top speed so I figured it's time to pull the sheaves and clean them out.
      When I pulled the primary sheave off, this rubber piece fell out that I can't find anywhere on the parts diagram nor where it might have come from. Any ideas?
      Note, it looks worn down on an angle, so wherever it came from it might have been jammed in the sheave and that could have been what was preventing me from reaching higher speeds.
      Any help is appreciated.
