Good Day, We have an 03 Traxter Max 500. Great machine, however I can't figure out how to adjust the spring tensions on the shocks. I can't apply enough torque using the provided little spanner wrench to overcome the initial spring tension to change the setting. Any ideas??
Regards, Dennis

traxter Max 500....

Most of the time there is 2 spanner nuts. The top spanner is the locking nut that holds the bottom spanner from moving. You have to hold the bottom one while un-tightening the top spanner.....Make sure the quad is on a jack stands(NO weight on shock)....:thumbsup:
Tightening the spring doesn't adjust ride height=It adjusts suspension sag....
