Please please Please adjust them. Spend a good half day or more getting them dialed in. So many times people just slap the 8 bolts in and think their work is done.

Won't be long now till all the orders start coming in. Wouldn't surprise me if at least 25% of forum members will have Elkas by month end. MGRAM is the only one I know that got his already.

Maybe it's time for someone to post a "How To" instructions on proper setup. I have a pretty basic idea, just not sure about setting up the low speed compression.

I went for a ride today so when they come I can do a real comparison and make the adjustments:th_smiliedance::tools1:

Mine are installed and will be testing them this weekend, the instructions with the elka's are very descriptive in how to adjust, they roughly adjust them to get you close to what you tell them your weight and riding is, but they will need to be adjusted or your not getting your money's worth
Now everyone likes pics right? :)

I can't figure you out MGRAM. Your old shocks look as new as the new Elkas and just last week you had a new Big Gun exhaust and now new HMF. They hiring where you work? lol

I ordered mine Feb 16th still not here yet. I emailed ELKA and they said 4-6 weeks now because of the amount of orders they received. Oh well. April 15th is the end of sled season and there's still 4 ft of snow here.

I still don't know how I received mine so quick, because when I placed my order they said it would be until the end of March for mine to come in, my order must of gotten accidentally bumped up to the top, usually the opposite happens lol

Nice. I paid 1800 for my stage 3s with rebound in front also. Once adjust properly and they wear in some they are awesome.

I ordered a set of stage 4's on February 14, I still haven't heard anything about them being shipped. The credit card has not been charged yet.

Ordered mine on 2/13 and I'm still patiently waiting, pretty sure shipping will take a little longer coming to the bottom of Louisiana. Plus they have had some pretty bad weather that has been delaying other packages from up north.
