increase compression or tighten the preload
can you guys tell me how to stiffen up my rear shock so im not bottoming out so much like in the picture
On the left side on top of the resevior there is a small flathead screw......turning it in (t the right) stiffins it up, each click is a new setting, you can also adjust your spring collors a bit as well but that will affect your ride height

i tried turning that screw on the rezzie all the way to the right and its still just as soft
increase the preload until the bike sags 2-3" in the rear with you on it...then turn your compression way back to all the way out. now ride and increase it by little bits until the action of the shock is not too stiff but not too plush.
If that doesnt work then get it refreshed.Stock oil is junk in Raptor shocks.
Take that camelback off your back causes to much weight distribution...LOL I agree with what was said...
yea thats all i do is jumps like that no trails only pit riding and in the pic i was a couple feet in the air so coming down kind of hurt lol
Adjust your spring preload first and leave the compression in the middle and go ride. If it still bottoms easily then stiffen the compression. If that doesn't help then you will need a stiffer spring. You don't want to ride with your compression cranked all the way in.
