My 87 yamaha exciter 570 lost the spring in the front end...My two shocks are bottomed out ? im not sure if they lost the gas or air ? it seems weird that they would both go out at the same time unless they are linked together some how?Any advice would be a big help!!

Ok, first of all, even if your shocks are bad they shouldnt be bottomed out. Shocks just control the bouncing, they have nothing to do with ride height. The springs are what keeps your suspension from bottoming out. What i would look for is to check the Aluminum Shafts that hold your skid into the tunnel to make sure they arent seized up inside the pivot tubes. These shafts run the width of the tunnel and are where your suspension bolts into the tunnel. If they are moving freely, check to make sure the springs aren't broken and that nothing else is binding.

Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.

Are the cans that the shafts go in dented? If so the springs will bind Big time! They may even be rusty. Take the cans off and look.
