Zrt 800 -98

Hi

I have a ZRT 800, that i have extended the tunnel, 144" track, 6" handlebar riser.

I planned to buy me a M8 or M1000 this winter, but I am gonna ride my old ZRT this winter to.

But I need a new rear shock, what should I buy? And is it possible to change it without remove the skid?

Are you running rail extensions? If so, you can have the shock rebuilt cheaper than buying a new one. Its always easier by far to remove the skid and that way you can check all the wheels and bearings too. Also the hyfax slides.

Are using rail extension.
I think i need a new one, because the piston in the shock is bent. I have new wheels and bearings, so that part is ok.

Also I think i need new skies to.

The part number you need is 1604-382. Here is a link to some shocks that show what other sleds will interchange and other shocks that will work as long and the shock stroke and length are slightly larger. This way you have a little selection without buying brand new. Look under "Rear suspension rear arm". Maybe you can check Ebay too.

Thanks

Should I replace the front shock (in the skid) to, and find a stiffer shock in the rear since I have rail extension?

I use it 90% of the time to drive in mountains and powder, almost never on trail.

This winter I thinking of build me a small ramp, to jump a little bit

You may be able to use a sno pro spring in the front. I think they are a little stiffer. Maybe someone on here will have a chart. Those sleds are a little on the heavy side to be jumping a lot. You can change the oil to a heavier oil and change the valving in the shock if you have it rebuilt too. Your call.
