A couple years ago my dad had someone put all new rydefx shocks on his 99 zl 600 efi (they were rydefx to start with from factory too.) Since that was done you could push the skid down with your hand. It bottomed out easy. So we thought his torsion springs were sacked out since there is 6k miles on it. so we ordered him the new heavy ones. put them in and it still does the same thing. Pretty much bottoms out the whole time you are on it. We've have ripped the skid out multiple times. everything looks to be correct. The only conclusion I can come up with is that the rear shock isn't the right one. Whether the shaft isn't the correct length or it doesn't have the right pressure? would the wrong rear shock affect it like this?
Any help would be great.
Thanks[thumb]

Def shouldnt be that easy to collapse. Maybe something in the rear torque arm is mounted wrong? Find a parts diagram for the susp, like on http://www.babbittsonline.com/home and make sure all the bolts are in the right holes.
