Maybe Polaris didn't use more M-10's because they couldn't get them. They are made by Fast and I guess they have some kind of deal going with Polaris.Polaris supplies the engines for the Fast Blade, and Fast provides the suspension for the Indy Classic & spring order sleds for Polaris.
Do you know what sleds have the M-10? Is it an option? I thought it was standard on the 600 Classic.

the M10 comes standard on the new 600 & 700 Classics.You could have ordered the M10 as an option on some of the XC,s during snowcheck.I recieved an interesting piece of mail the other day from Hi-performance engineers(www.hiperf.com)They offer the M10 for a variety of makes and track lengths for $1,100 to $1,500.If you have a good , powerful machine, that may be a great way to upgrade for that modern ride without having to purchase a new sled.
I got the same buyer's guide from hiperf.com. They only have a portion of the M-10's that fast makes. They came out with a new entry level trail model for $799. And they also have the Ohlins equipted model for $1549. Wish I could afford to upgrade but I have to go out to Breckenridge for a week snowboarding.
First of all the M-10 suspension is not any better than the 02 Edge supension. Yes the only way you could get the M-10 was if you snow checked it. The difference, the M-10 gives you a plusher ride than the Edge but if your a mogul masher then the Edge is your choice. Any Polaris dealer will explain it to you.
The M-10 does have advantages................IN certain areas. I have ridden both and for me, the dissadvantages outweight the advantages so I would stick with the EDGE suspention. THe M-10 wouldn't hold up to my kind of riding.
