Hello everyone. I own a 2013 Pro RMK Assault. I am looking for any tips or advice anyone has for the suspension set up.

Currently:
Least amount of pre-load as possible on front ski shocks
Clickers 2 up from the softest setting on the ski shocks
Rear sag set up for my weight with gear and 5L gas (235)
Clicker on the track shock set to about 7 from softest (I think that is right around half or just under half way)
Front track shock preload cranked up to about 8-3/4" (max in the manual for that shock)
I have also added narrow front ski spindles, and the skis are in skinny mode
Running the 155", 2.4" powder track, not competition track

Trail manners aren't that great, but hey, this is a mountain sled! That's ok. I am not the kind of guy that likes to change settings all the time either. I set my clickers, preload and such to where I think it should be and ride. I have made adjustments over the years, but don't notice much difference. Am I way out to lunch or does anyone see a smoking gun to a wrong set up or setting?

I am wondering how this compares to everyone else's set ups on their Assaults? I feel like it is still a work out to flop around, side to side. I don't really jump or drop much, and not really into the big straight climbs or chute pulls. Really enjoy tree riding, little rollers, little booters, and the odd hill climb. I think I want it to be more playful. And I don't know why everyone says they are wheelie machines, because mine doesn't wheelie very well, but maybe that's rider talent... Also, I should say this sled is completely different in bumper deep powder compared to the 6"ish or settled snow (which seems to be more often what I get to ride).

Anyone willing to help with their set ups would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Oh, and a new Khaos isn't in the budget, and I don't need to hear "better buy a doo" crap either. Thanks!

What position is your front skid in? Look where your ankles are. The top hole is for less transfer and where the pro rmk comes with. Drop it down to the bottom hole for more weight transfer.

The Assault comes with it in the bottom hole, I believe. I will double check tomorrow. Thanks.

36 a arms
This is an expensive endeavor. I have to replace shocks too. They are not the same as a regular Pro, they are longer. So, no one makes a narrow A arm Assault kit. Have to buy narrow Pro A arms, and shorter shocks and steering tie rods. I am not going to spend $3000 on a new front end kit. I am not going to put inferior regular Pro shocks on, when I have the WE clickers on right now. I did put the narrow spindles on to help with the width. I am looking for other people with Assaults, who can share their suspension settings, not just tell me to buy more parts.
