Hello

I have a 2012 Kawasaki T-4. And have a suspension question...

I was wondering how to adjust my rear suspension to get the least amount of sag?

I am not really concerned with the sporty handling ability. I am more concerned with the rocks we are constantly hitting when we are loaded. I am going to order either a super ATV lift or a high lifter, but I would still like to set the rear suspension so it does not sag so much under load. I have played with both adjustment screws on rear suspension, but can't seem to find the sweet spot. Any help would be appreciated.

You have to turn the preload adjusters tighter to lessen the suspension sag in the rear. You should also order the catvos rear coil spring spacers and install them with the HL lift kit.

Thank you for your reply. I will order the H.L and coil spacers.Do u think I need 1" wheel spacers for rear? Your machine looks just the way they all should, very nice.I noticed you mentioned you have tracks,does the T4 have enough power to take you where you need to go?I live @ 7000' and ride to almost 10,000' we are in the wind river mtns and I am seriously thinking on tracks for spring and fall, but i was unsure on performance on this machine.This would be a huge investment for me and you look like u use your toys so an honest opinion would be great.
