Question XRT 810 has a very ruff ride

I bought a used 2005 XRT 810. It has a very ruff ride. I mean I can fell every bump on the ground. I would like to know if this is normal. Buy the way the cart has about 30 hours on the meter.

My Lynx (XRT 550) has the same ride... a bit stiff... try lowering the tire presure a bit... 15 lbs. or so...

Doc,

The ride is normal!
The XRT's are made with the "Heavy duty" suspension, only because they are built as a "Work" vehicle.
The goal of that cart is to handle 2 people and a load of: tools, topsoil, sand, bricks...etc.
Without the extra load, it will ride very stiff!

If you want it to ride with a softer feel,
you could change the leaf springs to stock DS springs.
but... I for one, would NOT recommend it!!!
Or... you could put a couple of bags of sand in the box!
If you want more of a "Cruiser"... sell it, and get a CC DS, or a Precedent!

My 2 cents!

I am not going to change the springs or sell it. I guess Itís something I can live with. Thanks a lot for your help.

I wouldn't sell it, or change the springs either...
You'll get used to it... with just a little more time running around on it,
you'll be happy you have... what you have!
