I really could use help on this issue..her prowler 650xt rides so rough I can't hardly get her to go riding anymore..last ride we switched..she rode my ranger and I rode or prowler..I now understand why she doesn't want to ride anymore..even running 5mph and 19mph on fairly smooth roads it beat me to death..got to fix if I knowed what to do..I'm thinking maybe it is rear shocks maybe locked up somehow..after I rode it I tried pushing down on rear end while on a lunch break and I couldn't push rear down at all..shocks on softest seatings..Also next time out riding I was behind her and best I could see the rear lower control arms never moved up or down when she hit a bump or rock..
