It is too bad that they detuned the 800 motor, but we have seen even better life out of them.
I ended up doing the shock upgrades on my '15 137" 800.(wow, that is a lot of numbers)
. Anyhow, the sled did rock with upgrades.
I also rode a '16 800 with the short track for a couple of days this past winter on brutal trails. I was impressed with the ride on that sled in the rough.
I am not surprised that the critics liked the ride on these setups. They are better in the rough junk at speed than any stock sleds I have seen.
I ordered the RR 137", and will try it stock for the first long trip. It might end up staying stock.
Does anyone want to buy four thousand bucks worth of shocks? I do have quite a few that I have had made over the past few years.
