^^^^^^this could be why its shot the sled was not ment to be rode like that thay are for high speed runs and trail riding not snow cross lol just kiding make shure you did not blow a shock or got it with a bad shock .... if you look on the cluch gard it will tell you kinda what the setings are and what weight they are for

Where is the spring setting? If it is all the way soft, crank it up and see if it gets better. If it is at max stiffness, the springs are worn. If you change the springs you're probably do for a shock rebuild/ replacement.
The shocks should bottom out on the biggest jumps only.

So to answer your question, instead of questioning your riding style, you probably need new torsion springs. If they are original 95 springs and you want to beat them like that, you should get some new ones.

TEAMXMXZ600- the mach's were meant to be ridden hard
Sorry, a 95' Mach was not meant for that BskidooC. In 96' they revamped the suspension and changed several pivot points in the chassis, that's when Ski-Doo started to really compete in Sno-Cross.

I had the same trouble after a couple of crappy snow years and beating a 6 mile extremely tore up, drifted in trail. If you take one end of your shock off, and compress it (any amount) it should extend slow and steady. If it stays compressed, go buy a 40 or so dollar shock. I also put the heavy duty skidoo springs on my summit, cause I figured I went from 165 to 200 pounds, maybe the springs that offshore was talking about in the previous thread were too small. I think the heavier springs rode better through bumps anyway. That's my humble opinion.
