Camber question on 2012 kq 750

Well, I just put new tires on the quad and it looks like the camber changed a little, but never paid attention to it with stock tires. They angle like this \, not as steep but you get the idea. The tires are dirt tamers and are 26x9 in the front. Do kq come like this or does it just need to break in or what? If its not supposed to be like that them how do I fix it? Only has around 30 miles on it

Have you had someone sit on it to see if they level out with your weight? If it does then you are good to go, if not you can always go down in stiffness on your shocks if they are not all the way down currently. All of the King Quads to my knowledge do have a slight bit of angle to them from the factory that way when you are on them you have better ground contact with the tires.

If you are referring to this: \-/ then yes generally there is always a bit of camber in the rear wheels as Tubby stated. Sometimes you can even get the opposite affect like this: /-\ if your suspension is set to soft. The softer it is set the more /-\ you will have, and the stiffer the suspension is set the more \-/ you will have. The idea is to try and get a happy medium as when you sit on the quad the wheels level out to as straight as possible. The bike should have 5 settings, if you are on setting one and the suspension is a little in this manner \-/ as you described then with time it'll break in and straighten itself out with wear. And with that wear you'll most likely need to up the setting on the shocks as the springs lose their strength.

Oh ok that's good to know. Thanks guys. I knew it had adjustable shocks but by the way the dealer mechanic described it, it was just got ride quality. It straitened out a bit when my dad sat on it but he's 315lbs to my 200 lol.

Just trying to help, no need for the extra credit. We all just try and go that extra step sometimes, that's what makes this a great forum.
