Do you have the springs adjusted to the stiffest setting? If not when you are adjusting them jack up the ATV to relieve the weight from the suspension.

The cheapest solution would be to add hockey pucks up to the current springs.

Other Options would be to use stiffer springs from high lifter or a non TRV cat.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Trv springs and or shocks are shorter if I remember right. I do know TRVs sit lower than normal Cats. I keep looking for it on TRA and put a link for it here. Edited by BuckBilly

Yes heaver springs would work better as far as getting rid of the sag but you will have a stiffer ride.

You can check out Highlifters Site for stiffer springs.

The TRV and the new ride in suspension Cats have smaller springs allowing for the lower ride height. If you use springs from a Mud Pro or older compatible Cat then your ride height will increase and you will get rid of the sag when running 2 up. If you choose to do this just make sure the part numbers are the same on the shocks. I think the few times I seen this done they just hapened to change both just because they got the springs and shocks at a good deal.

I personally use the hocky pucks and it cost me about $5. The heaver springs fatigue over time depending on how you ride. With the pucks I have about 14" of ground clearance in my 07 (non ride in suspension CAT).

You can also add a 1.5" lift as another option.

TRVs and the Ride in Suspension, 08+ on some models have smaller springs and posibilly even diffrent shocks. They are replaceable with the older style to go back to the taller ride height.

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      Hi, I just bought a used 1990 warrior and the rear is sagging low like it has a lowering kit but I’m not sure, does anyone know what it could be?

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      Hello, I'm new to the forum and really need some help. Last week I was driving my big bear and everything was working as it should, at the end of the day I shut it off and the starter would not restart the bike, I checked the battery and it was dead. There was good power coming from the stator and the battery was good so I ordered a voltage regulator. New regulator came in and it was charging but letting through to much voltage so it was returned and I got a different regulator from a different company. Now with the regulator plugged in the bike would idle but if you hit the gas it would backfire and stutter and if you let off it would return to idle normally, if I run the bike without the new regulator it runs like the day it came from factory. I plugged in my first regulator that started this problem to check voltage again and now the bike has weak spark and will not start with a booster pack or the pull start.
         Any help would be appreciated as I drove the bike with the regulator out with no issues until I started trying to put in the new regulators. Thank you
