  1. M Series/Mountain Cat Pre 2011
    So, I just picked up an 2011 m8 snopro with alternative impact aarms. Ski stance is like something out of a horror movie (see pictures). It says on Alternative Impacts website that when installing aarms one should also change shocks to (I assume?) shorter ones since arms are shorter. Could not...
  2. General ATV Discussion
    Hello all Looking for some input from the community regarding shocks for my 07 650 h1. The originals are still in there, and the machine has 800 hours on it. The suspension feels poor, but it’s my first quad I’ve ever owned so not sure if I should be replacing them at this point? Thanks in...
  3. General ATV Discussion
    Hello all, this is my first post on the site. I recently picked up a 2002 500 4x4 automatic with the solid rear axle. I got it for cheap but it needs a good amount of work. One of the big things I am trying to fix is the suspension. The front shocks are blown, the rears are alright but Id still...
  4. F Series Twin Spar Chassis 07-20
    Hi guys I have a 2010 F8 and the skid front shock blew apart and bushing hole is worn severely. I just bought the sled so it’s not lack of maintenance on my part. The struggle is I can’t get a new shock from cat. Unavailable. It’s really such BS that they can do this. Anyone have any ideas on...
  5. M Series/Mountain Cat Pre 2011
    Looking at doing some upgrading/losing weight for my wife’s M6. Running great, 120psi on both. Skinz aftermarket hood installed. 2 day trip to the mountains complete recently and not a single hiccup from the machine. She complained about rough ride and no reverse lol so focusing first on...
  6. Utility ATV repair, maintenance, troubleshooting
    Hey guys! I'm thinking about using the Fox Float Evol 3 R in my rear suspension. But before it i would like to know if you guys could help me out with some doubts. First of all, how often i have to do maintenance at those shocks? Are they durable or break often? How about the cost of the...
  7. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    Hello, I am new to this site and I haven't had a sled since I was a little kid. I just bought a 1995 ZR580 with a Wildcat 700 engine. I have been researching the AGLT mod for the front suspension which I will be doing. I have researched the rear suspension mod using 1997 and up rear skids as...
  8. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    i just got my 93 ext in my garage to rebuild and was noticing the lack of suspension, if anyone knows a way to ajust the rear to sit higher it would be much appriciated.
  9. Firecat/Sabercat
    After banging through a lot of big drifts yesterday I got home and noticed my sled was sitting very low, I lift it up and it drops a little and stays but if you push down there is no rebound at all, I'm assuming my shock is toast but am I wrong? Also this may seem like a dumb question but should...

  11. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    I have an 03 zr 800 efi that has been a suspension hell. I just had my shocks rebuilt and put new stock springs on. I ordered the stock spring sleeves as well. When I went to put them on, they fit over the axle good but there seemed to be a lot of space between said sleeve and spring. I...
  12. General Snowmobile Discussion
    This could have been real bad. This is what My wife's bearing looked like when I went to switch out her track for a new one. I'm so glad we caught it! We take our sleds yearly for tune ups and once overs to the dealer and apparently they missed this! We didn't get really any ride time this year...
  13. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    Ok, so we have run across a bit of a problem in replacing the rear shock on my wife's ZRT. We went to the parts store and ordered the replacement part, but when we got it home and got the original off it was a totally different looking shock. The barrel size and overall length is much longer...
  14. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    I was riding my 99 ZL 500 on rough trails last weekend. There were two of us on it. After riding for two or three hours, then getting off, I noticed the sled appeared to be sitting very low. In fact, it was sitting about an inch from bottom rather than having the usual 6 or so inches of travel...
  15. M Series/Mountain Cat Pre 2011
    how does every one like to run the sleds? Do u like it a little tighter or a little looser?
  16. F Series Twin Spar Chassis 07-20
    I adjusted the front shocks on my 2003 F7 sp. I raised the front end so the skis were off the ground. I backed the top retainer off until 2.5 inches of thread was exposed out of the top. I then raised the rear until the track was off the ground. I backed the spring on the front rear shock off...

  18. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    I have a 1994 Arctic Cat EXT580, non-efi w/ reverse. I am 280lbs without gear. I bought fox shocks off of a ZR, and then had them rebuilt and revalved by Deycore Industries for a 300lb rider (my approx weight with gear). I am thinking about getting stiffer springs, but I'm not quite sure...
