Well if it went in the other day it should go in again..  I'm not familiar with that bike but most shocks you can adjust in place. Mostly when we adjust the spring tension of a shock it doesn't change the length of the shock. The shock is usually fully extended by the spring and adjusting the spring makes no difference to that unfitted length, it only adjusts how far the bike drops once the weight comes on it. If you lift the bike the shock should fit no matter how the spring's adjusted.

Perhaps if you can post a photo of the setup on that bike I'll spot a problem.

It sounds like you adjusted them too much , the shocks are designed to be able to adjust on the bike by clicking up to the next step, they really need to be attached to be able to do that, not familiar with your bike , but they are usually fairly easy to adjust on the bike by turning it. You said when you put them on they fit but were out of adjustment, were they too high or too low. If you get them back to the way they were and reattach to the bike and see if you can adjust to the right height.

      Sorry I suck at these forums so if you see this submitted under update status, my bad. Anyhow this is a new shock for a 96 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 it fits my 96 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 4x4 perfectly. Little narrower are the bottom than the original but everything else is perfect. I extended it to almost a half in from full extension because I’m pushing 350 pounds.  It rides and hold me well. So if any of y'allRace driven shock. have been looking for one and didn’t want to do the research here it is.

      Hi everyone. 
      Let me explain the thread title. 
      My husband and I are very active in the nudist community, and we have stayed at many and most of the mainstream nudist and clothing optional campgrounds in the USA. We are now approaching our retirement and would like to start a podcast to share those off the road / backwoods / little known camping areas where nudity is allowed. We have purchased a 5th wheel camping trailer with a rear garage for the ATV and now need some good reports on the one to buy. 
      We are most interested in a side by side unit but would love to get your thoughts. 
      Feel free to stop by and say Hi and ask anything you would like to better understand what we are looking for in an offroad unit. 
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you.
