Okay, i finally found a Chinesium tool to fit the  notches properly on the shock absorber.

I would like to soften the ride up so it's not *as* bumpy. Now  I''m thinking, if i want to make it ride smoother i would lessen the spring tension, correct so the spring has more spring to it and room to compress??? but the table shows if it's bad terrain, to put it on a higher notch.

What say y'all?

You're on the right track,  the higher notch on the shocks is recommended to give higher clearance in bad terrain.  If you don't need all the clearance you can get, lowering will give you a softer ride on more even terrain.  Right now mine are cranked all the way up because my last trail ride included a lot of rock crawling.  I actually need to lower them now.

      new member but I have a question. I have a 2017 challenger 750. When I put it into high at take-off I have to give it a lot of throttle before it will begin moving. Is this normal or is there a way to adjust this? And talk about loud.OMG it makes my ears hurt after a short ride

      Alright folks, finally got my buggy off the farm, loaded into my truck bed (yes they fit beautifully in a 6 ft Ford bed,) and taken out to the woods for a trail ride. Machine did great, with me, another full size guy, my 3 year old son, and a dog, we were still able to hit around 50 on the speedo on straight smooth roads, and still was able to climb some decent grades. I had a couple of observations and questions for yall. What notch on the suspension are you using? With all the above weight it still felt to be hitting pretty hard two notches from the softest setting. I loosened it up to the lightest the front, and left the rear as is, and if seems to feel better and still not squatting much with me in it. Also, anyone else notice the tire rubber seems to be really soft? I am noticing significant wear and I am still under 200 miles on mine. Third, I made an attempt to climb a fairly steep quarry wall, no dice, even with just me on board. Clutches started to slip on me. I am debating doing some mods in that regard to help compensate a little for the lack of a low range. I posted looking for info over in the hisun forum if anyone wants to chime in. Overall I am very pleased with the unit. Nothing broke, she rode well, is spacious for its size, and seem to sip the fuel.

      Well, guys, after 2 years of disasterous lack of reliability from my MSU 500, begining on first day I owned it,  [ 6 trips to shop, AT MY EXPENSE, massimo never paid one cent]  it looks like we have corrected all the factory inadequacies with reliable YAMAHA parts . This seems to have resulted in a decent  side x side  that is reliable now as well as capable  on the trails and in the mudholes. I know,  I am as shocked as anyone , but its true..  Through no help whatsoever from  the  joke  called Massimo Tech Service,  it is actually performing  well.   It has not had to be towed back to trailer in almost a year.... Just thought I  would update  you guys.. I sure hope I m not crowing too soon.
