    i need to know this ASAP as this may be a turning point in keeping the machine or not..... knowing we can improve the speed is a plus, now i just need to see if better shocks really improve the overall ride

    I can tell you that pretty much any aftermarket shock and even retrofitting X2 shocks to the X4 will improve ride tremendously. It's just a matter of which one is best (for your purposes)\budget.

    The KYB on the X2 would be a good shock but the spring they chose in my opinion is junk. There is an option to change the springs from JBS. It adds 2 inches of height and a great ride. Quality springs. Some of us have height issues due to trailering and the extra 2 inches doesn’t make this option possible.

    I drive fairly aggressively, and I want a smoother ride for the family when I have the kids in the back. Very tempted to pull the trigger on some WE's I dont want just springs and I already have ample ground clearance with the 28's

    What pressure are you running in your tires? Im at 11 psi and my X4 with stock shocks and it rides like a dirt caddy. Lol. All kidding aside I have been very impressed with how my X4 rides. It also seems to get smoother with passengers in it. I just don't like the lack of adjustability of the X4's shocks. Yamaha stuck it to us X4 owners with the X2's adjustable resi shocks and reverse lights. Already got one fixed though.
