Ok, I have a hopefully easy question.
  On the stock outlaw IRS rear Fox podium X shocks w/rezzies (from a 2006 outlaw 500), what rebound valving changes are usually made to them?  Do they need more rebound damping or less?  Im having a pair rebuilt and the shop said they can make the adjustments if I know what I need.  The shocks currently on mine are already revalved so I don't have any way to compare them to stock. 
  Thanks!

Send them to Ian at monsterperf.com.  Very knowledgeable and reasonable prices.

The set I'm running now were revalved by Monster, and they work good. I may just take them up with me and have them set these up the same as those.

a lot of factors play a role in re-valving a shock. your weight and riding style. Whether they are fronts or rears. whether is has a seperate reservoir or not. a lot of high end shock builders will revalve them and put an overload or secondary spring on them

Stock Podiums look like this

Revalved with Progressive rate springs will look like this .
[8134d1378592488-irs-rear-tune-p8181756]

The dampening is effected by the progressive springs
Hope this Helps.

Thank you Andrew, but I don't think that's a stock podium x shock, as it looks have an adjustable rebound damper on the bottom (I haven't seen any of the factory ones with that feature- the two pair I have don't have that).

Also, if that's a pic of the rear of your outlaw, you may consider having a spacer machined to act as a crossover spacer (right now its acting like one long spring with about 88.5lbs/in rate), you'll really appreciate the difference.

no that wasn't mine that was just one I drummed up off google for you to see. Mine is currently in pieces after a fresh frame up powdercoat and only has stock crappy shox . I will have ohlins shox from a KTM quad and the rear 2 have been modified to fit an IRS- as soon as I pay for them lol . Re-Valved by Ron Elmore for my fat ass lol. IMO hes the Best in the Business.
