I'm 99% sure the 06 and 07 suspension is the same. They just changed the literature to reflect the M tunnel....as they forgot to add that to the 06.

Trust me if you can bottom the sno pro rear end in the 06's you are riding way too hard. It's beastly.

Wished that I would have bought the Sno-Pro, rear suspension on the standard is pretty easy to bottom out. Oh and I weigh less than you do. slomo If you feel that you need to have reverse get the 07 otherwise buy the 06, alot less depreciation.

Would swapping out the front spring in the rear suspension help beef it up...that's only a $30 mod?

welcome call to ArcticChat !. :thumbsup:

Could you tell me which dealer would let go a '06 XF 600 SP for $5,700 ?. One dealer near my home asking for $6999 plus tax, set-up and freight. The other dealer about 30 minutes away from my home wanted $7,599 plus... :(

NY dealers are not blowing out the 06's like the mid-west dealers. I ran into the same thing when i bought mine in November. $500-1000 less in wisconson than in NY.

Agree with you on that. Have been debating whether I should go out Mid-West and get me one. I've done that with my old T-Cat 2 summers ago by traveling to Michigan which is Time Consuming and $$$ factor versus purchasing XF here and get it over with. I dunno
