I have a 2001 Pro X 600. I like it a lot. My only complaint is the rear is too stiff. I had the shocks re-valved and the blocks are set at the lowest level. It has the adjustable dampening RYDE FX shocks which seem to work best at the lowest position. I'm sick of tearing these shocks apart. Is there anyone that knows the solution. I asked the factory and they couldn't tell me.

A lighter spring will definitely help, but those Pro X's are meant for real hard go'n, big air fly'n, bone shake land'n, ditch bang'in abuse......a trail sled...it is not.

Lighter springs should do the trick. But on the off chance they don't you could try different shocks, if revalving didn't work.

500fasenuf is right, this sled is built for racing. Especially a 2001 pro X 600. Not trail riding. It's supposed to be stiff. I'm getting an 03 Pro X 600


Anyway, you can try revalving them again, but a lighter rate spring will help a lot. the ones that come with the pro X, espcially 2001 (racers only) would be really really stiff, intended for racing.

If none of that stuff works, go buy a Position Sensitive shock, or put in some Select shocks or something.



Ride the Best!

Thanks guys for your input. Believe me, I ride hard and the suspension works great, but sometimes when I with a slower group the suspension beats the hell out of me. I'm trying to get the best of both worlds I guess. I'll probably try revalving the shocks again. If that doesn't work I'll see if I can try some springs instead of buying some. Hopefully I'll find a happy medium. I'm on a limited budget because I'm a college student. I had to sell my truck to keep my sled this year. Now that's keeping your priorities straight.
