wel today i went out and i tried getting some height over the aproaches. but everytime i tried, my front end would go straight up. is this because i am not letting off on the gas in the air and breaking in the air to bring my front end down. also do you think my suspension would do half decnt for this type of thing i know its not a pro x but its got the fox clicker racing shock

Your rear end is dropping because your on the gas to much off the lip. You need to just keep a constant speed to the lip of the jump. Also dont let off the gas all the way either this will make the front end dive. Just keep a nice consistent amount off throttle going when you leave the transition, once in the air let off and correct using your brake and gas.

Just work the throttle properly and rarely have to use the brake when in the air.

your xc can take it i jumped a road on an elan once. hold it going up when first i nthe air keep thrttole steady only break and let off if the nose is really high. letting off can throw the nose to much. just learning is hard ot get sued to but once you no how its really easy.

Yeah I read about that in a magazine and it works great so as your going to the jump keep a good speed till the lid like everone else said and I also had this same problem by the way but when ur in the air if your give it gas in mid air your sled will lean back and like your problem and like mine was when your in mid air tap the brake if your nose is to high and you will level out guarantee this will work good luck !

steady throttle, lean forward. A stock bar setup makes it really goony to jump. Clicky the video link in my sig....theres a decent amount of jumping in there. It's nothing big but we're not gooning out.

too much throttle at the top of the jump
all personal vehicles want to climb when you stay on the gas until you ae in the air.

Would you like any more proof?


I will give you some more. That is a jump pman built when I went riding there. Here is pman and the Fusion.

Here is my friend Matt on his XLT. Remember that post about "You don't need a racing sled to jump"?

And here is another of me. Why would I have so many pictures of the exact same jump?

Believe me now?
