    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows how to adjust the front track shock
    on a 95 xcr 600. I just picked it up without a manual and I'm not sure if it can be adjusted by hand or if you need a spanner.

    i guess we need a little more info here, by adjusting, what are you trying to accomplish, or i should say, what are you looking to get out of it, is there a problem,etc. just need some more info as to why you want this done

    I need to adjust the pre-load. It's too stiff in the front of the track

    I used to have a 96 xcr 600 and you can adjust the front track shock by rotating the spring left or right for more preload. However, somebody stole my sled and i later found it, but they stole the rear suspension and left the machine in a field. Anyway, insurance paid for a new rear suspension, and they put in a used one off of a 97 xcr 600, so it might be a bit different. Mine had threaded adjustable Fox gas shocks and as i mentioned, you just turn the spring like a giant nut and bolt. If the shock is not threaded, then you probably have a "cam" setup where you just rotate the ring-shaped aluminum tensioner up or down among the pegs on the shock body. It may require a special hook-shaped tool or a wrench to turn. I hope i didn't confuse you. good luck!

    some of those shock springs , you have to remove the shock, put a spring compressor on it and remove the snapring, chances are your shocks are not threaded type, at least the ones on the 96 xcr suspension on my 93 xlt are not. but after removeing the snap-ring, there is a big black piece(spring block) you move it up or down on the shock body, then replace the snap ring.

    Like Megaman said, you can tighten or loosen the spring over the shock by just turning it, if it's threaded. If that doesn't help enough, you can take the shock off and get it re-valved to be stiffer.

    my xlt has fox on it, and so did the xcr i took parts from, niether of which were the "threaded" type, so you have to remove the snap-ring to move the springs
