Primary Sled: 2004 Ski-Doo MXZ Renegade X 600HO SDI
Where I sled: Mid-Ontario
Friends, I have an 04 Renegade X and noticed the same issue as all of you. However, I am sure that most of you haven't actually ridden your selds yet. You must keep it in mind that all of these parts are brand new and not broken in yet. That means slidders (or hyfax buzz word) and all other suspension components. Now that I have 75kms on my machine of pretty aggressive riding, my suspension is smooth as silk. I weigh 215 and have my rear springs set to 3, but the springs on my X are heavier duty then the adrenaline ones I beleive, my front shock in the skid is only threaded down about 1.5 cm's, probably equivalent of 2/5, my ski shocks are threaded to 3. This worked really good for me. I had played with different settings and this one was best. Anyway, another thing I do is lightly spray the suspension components and joints with white lithium grease before I ride. I also grease all the fittings. Another thing I find works good is putting some grease on the slidding spring blocks down by the aluminum skid frame. Where the rear spring goes through the small plastic guide blocks. See in front of the rear wheels. That rod must slide in and out freely. Don't be to concerned where the coupling blocks sit before you have even ridden it. It will work flawless once broken in.

I understand what you are saying Tiggy but in my opinion if a suspension is not yet broken in it will be overly stiff. Mine is overly soft. It doesn't seem to matter how stiff I set the back springs there seems to be a couple of inches of sag as soon as you let it down. No matter how gently you do it. My 02 Adrenaline was not like this. Last years Rev's didn't seem to have this issue.
