out, do you have a problem with the front end sitting to low? i have the rear shock preload up as far as it can go, and i have like 2 inchs of threads under the preload ring on my elkas, this rear shock is freaking horrible. also, it caused me to go flipping this past weekend from bucking me up.

are u using stock linkage? if so, that's probably your problem.

White, something doesn't sound right. My bike sits pretty flat with the collars relatively in the same position front and back. It sounds like the spring rate might be wrong or something. I'm no expert but, I've had 2 sets of Elka's on 2 different machines and neither had the fronts and backs so different. I would make a direct call to Elka, or send them an email. Their customer service is awesome. Good luck man. Once you get it sorted out, you'll love'em.

Nice ride! I found out this weekend how bad the rear shock/linkage is on these things. I was out drag racing at a ATV ranch this weekend and there were some very small woops at the end and I almost went over the bars both times I ran hitting them at the top of 4th. It was a scary ride to say the least with the ass end bucking up so badly. I went back to camp and adjusted my shocks all around to soften them up and it helped but not a whole lot. I wish I could get my hands on the guy that designed this crap.
