Is it just me or is this thing extremely "rigid". I am having some probs getting this thing dialed in. This is what Im feeling. I feel the suspension is just to hard to soak up the little bumps. Also, when in a straight line it feels like the steering is way to possitive. Just a little wiggle of the bars and it upsets the whole quad. Has anyone found a way to "slow" the steering and suspension down? I am 6 foot 210 pounds and I just feel its way to rigid. Any tips on setting this up would be great. Thanks

How old is the quad? If it's new than give it some time. At first mine were really bouncy and stiff but once I went and rode it for a while they softened up and got much better.

put some hard hours on it then try to tune your set up, never going to be a plush ride. install a steering stabalizer, i put a stick type on mine (even though it is not the best) well worth the 130$

From what others have stated, the frame is too rigid, even with aftermarket or revalved stock shocks, they are being set-up too stiff.
I have the elka stabilizer and it helps out the twitchy front end a lot.
