Need advice on my new sled (used)

       Well just  picked  up  a  2000  Arctic  Cat  ZR-600  limited
edition  (Millennium)            The  sled  has  clicker  shocks  all
around,  has  knob  up  by  handle  bars.  I  need  some  advice  as
how  to  use  them  and  set  them  up.  My  weight  is  about  200
with  gear  on,  i  ride  aggressively,  any  help  would  be
appreciated.
I  will  be  posting  more  question  as  they  arise.

Thanks  for  the  advice

Get stiffer springs.  Use the 97 deg rear torsion springs,(part # 076/077)
and  110lb straight rate springs on the front.  set your front arm height at
6".  run the rear arm positioned all the way forward.  Front clickers on 3.
Rear on 2.  Set sag in front to 2", you should have about the same on the
rear with the stiffer springs also.  Use the lightest preload setting on the
tiangle block for the rear springs.

The only time I have used progressive springs on the front is in really soft
wet snow.  I recently switched from my 110lb springs and ran 100lb springs
and found it an acceptable compromise on switching back and forth between
straight's  and progressives.  Actually the 100lb straight rates were pretty
damn good.  I think you should go 110 though.  The 110's are the bomb up
front for aggressive riders on packed trails.

After much screwing around, thats what I found to work best on my Cat.(97
ZR440)  But, I'm running 120 studs in the track and 8" on the ski's.  My
Sled handles perfect for me.  I can change lines mid corner and only if I
get sloppy with body positioning will it stand up.  Your ride will be firm,
your handling will be crisp.  You will need to adjust it so suits your style
though.
