I got a 1999 zr 700 mod sled I’m building to be a 144 and I’m looking into new front suspension any recommendations out there for upgrades?

- Any front suspension from a 2003+ 1M Mtn sled is the front end you want to use. Saves weight, works better, lifts the front end up. No downsides.

- And look for a crossfire or m-series skid as they are also much lighter, have more travel, and are all around way better in every aspect.

- Upgrade to the 1M gas tank and seat and save more weight, and gain capacity.

- Then move the handlebars above the steering hoop and notch your hood.

- Start saving for a 800/900 engine transplant.

Remove it completely.
Then bolt on a 2003+ 1M front end. All four a-arms, steering tie rods, spindles, and shocks.
