    Yes it is a revolt. Sounds like your familiar with them. Did you have one or work on one for somebody ? There seems to be more of them on the west coast than by me. Thanks for the information.

    I've seen a couple up close in Oregon, that is about all. Really similar to a pilot in form, so they have similar issues regarding the squatting. Even the stock Weber motors make them lean back.

    There are a few videos of pilots with 800+ cc snowmobile engines. Not sure if the front wheels are ever on the ground. I think AKPilot had one?

    If there is any way to get more weight forward, that would help, and you may artificially push some weight forward by taking nitrogen out of the front shocks, unless they are too soft to begin with. Adding oil to the fronts will help as well, as the spring rate will drop off rapidly as the front drops out.

    Spring rate, put some more oil in them and reset the pressure to get your ride height back. If you put in more low speed damping you will run into other issues.

    BDKW1,

    Could you please give some examples? The "other issues" may be something that I can live with.

    Thanks in advance.

    The small chatter will rattle your teeth out.
