Hi,

Do you have the Torque curve as well ????


I did not get a torque curve, however, if your way smarter then me and can do a little math, you could figure out the torque. To much effort for my old mind though.

I know this is not fully performance question but, how do you adjust the sag, do you have to take apart the subframe for it? Its kind of tight to get there.

You adjust the sag by turning your rear shock adjustment ring....
1st...you need the right spring for your wieght, then adjust.

Do a search.....tons of info

I think I didnt expres correctly. I know how to do it, but my question is how do you reach the adjustment rings with the frame beeing all over the shock?

However, the Q4 still had the spark arrester installed as well. Which I promptly removed. Don't tell anybody.


Don't get caught in our local forests without it 'cause you will pay dearly:thumbsdn:

To wr mike, removing the spark arrestor in a Q4 will give you no performance gain because it is a screen type spark arrestor, unlike the original Q, and Q2. So do yourself a favor and put it back in because it is a fat ticket if you ever get caught and there is no advantage to it. Just a thought from a fellow dirt biker.

Nice, but your forgetting to add the rivet shavings from the pee shooter to your total tonnage.

If you have an 06 AIS kit the plug for the exhaust port wont fit. You will have to fabricate a plate or wait for an 07 kit.

No offence to anyone but has anybody ridden the thing. Ive had mine for a week now just done the basic mods.
But im haveing a nightmare with the suspension. It will climb anywere and i would say eat any other bike out there but the suspension is like riding a plank of wood i have set the sag and adjusted it every possible way but can get a plush ride. Anyone else haveing problems.

Regards dafydd uk

Had mine for about 3 weeks and the steed rips (w/mods). I hit a 1 foot deep hole at about 50 mph and absorbed it like it was nothing. :thumbsup: :devil: :smirk: Stock settings with two turns on the rear preload.

I have about 80 miles on mine and I think the suspension is spot on for me. What do you weigh?
