Hello, I have a 09 raptor 700 and I really want better suspension then what comes stock. But I dont know what I should go with. The problem that I am having is while I am hauling ass across the fields every bump i hit I feel in my back. I want something so it feels like Im gliding across the terain. Any help would be awesome.

It all depends on what your budget is. You can have your stock shocks rebuilt, which i hear is a great upgrade for the money or you can throw down some cash and get aftermarket like fox, motowoz, elka, etc...

Have the shocks set up for your weight and riding style, or send them to wiigstyle before his february sale expires and have them revalved and sprung for your weight and riding style he can make them as good as any standard travel aftermarket shock out there for like 575$. Your stock shocks are better than you think they have rebound, preload, high and low speed compression adjustments you just need to get them set up properly and or rebuilt and you will enjoy them alot more;)

I agree. I had Wiigstyle rebuild mine. Night and day difference from what they were stock. I was able to fly through the whoops and it soaked up the small stuff nicely after the rebuild. Felt like I was on a cushion of air. Very smooth, yet responsive.
