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.

      It’s kind of ATV related question as I need new trailer tires to tow my 4 wheeler. 
      Does anybody have any experience with loadstar 12” trailer tires ? 
      There is not to many choices for trailer tires here in Ontario and I was wandering if somebody can recommend me something.

      Suspension Question? Shocks for 250X
      I bought the wife a 2019 honda 250X,it does not have adjustable shocks,I'm thinking of maybe getting one  as well,for her she does not notice it as much as I  do but the ride is not as good as my 1991 250X with adjustable shocks.
      So I'm looking at maybe getting new shocks if I get one for myself,I find these.
