If I could get some of you guys to post pics of your springs, that would be great. If someone isn't experiencing this issue, please post a pic of your springs.
Same thing happened to me. I would call that number...the more Folks that call the more chances we might all get a fix.Here's mine with 73 miles...

I have not put a thing in the cargo box yet. I went on one ride with multiple adult passengers. Already down to 10.5" of clearance. 1.3" of sag in 73 miles. Ouch. Thanks for making me [email protected]
Did they ask for pictures?FYI: I opened a claim almost 8 months ago and have been getting nothing but a run around ever since! I was told that there is no customer service e-mail for issues like this and that I had to call Customer relations. (800-962-7926)
For those of you that have not checked, as per Yamaha's own spec sheet, you should have 11.8" if clearance. They even have a promo video (look under "Viking features") that claims...quote, "nearly 12 inches of class leading ground clearance." 2015 Yamaha Viking Video, movies . Completely stock with under 100 easy miles I was already down to 10.5 inches of clearance. You might not think it's that big of a deal but wait until you need it! Ground clearance IS a big deal for a SXS!
How many of you have checked your ground clearance measured at the bottom of your hitch? I'm curious to see how many others have this same problem?
The number again for customer relations is (800-962-7926)
Yes I did, but you could send photos of your as it is...it shows that you still have less than the 11.8 inches even with the 27" tires and the lift.I have the sag also but I have added 27's and a lift to help. Did you put back to stock to take pictures? I could put mine back to stock to take pics-just don't really want to if not needed
This pic was before the lift-just tires-I am sitting at about 14 now with the liftYes I did, but you could send photos of your as it is...it shows that you still have less than the 11.8 inches even with the 27" tires and the lift.
bluerebel, how the heck did you get the rear springs compressed enough to get the spacers in?
WOW!!!! If someone could just come up with a better coil we'de have it made. It would be much cheaper than a whole shock kit which can cost BIG bucks!I basically followed this guys technique. I ended up buying four new straps to cut....I didn't trust my old straps.
