If your sled is really a mod, then it has the factory Ski-Doo race shocks on it. I was considering switching over to Floats but everyone I talked to said to not do it. They said the best shocks for under $700 a shock are the Ski-Doo race shocks.

I do know that the floats are good trail and rough trail shocks.

If your not going to re-valve your stock ones, get a set of Walker Evans racer clicker shocks. Then get a higher charge put in right away. That's what I got and I never bottom out anymore. And with a couple clicks I can have a rode like a calillac on the trails. :)

Your stock HPG clicker X Ski-Doo race shocks are one of the best on the market. If you want real shocks get Fox Float Evol X, or stick to stock. If you wish, get a 3-way progressive rate front spring set-up, and a 2-way for the track shock. That will help for trail/hardcore complaince on the fly.

Rebuild yours? If you're not happy with them and their pretty much the best shocks you shouldn't need to change them unless they need to be rebuilt.

From what I've heard, Walker Evans are actually one of the cheaper quality clicker shocks you can buy, and you don't get your moneys worth out of them.

Factory Ski-Doo Race shocks arent HPG clickers like that of the Blizzard or later model X packages, and they aren't like the piggybacks featured on the other various X models. They are C-36 clickers, and are top of the line Bombardier.

well dont say things from what you hear. tell from expierence. the reason most people dont like W/E is because that they didnt come with stiff enough change from the factory, so people blew them out all the time. get a stiffer charge right away and youll be suprised.

I know of a lot of Polaris people that actually switch over to the doo race shocks.

Also, if your racing, and not valving your shocks anyways, you shouldn't be racing. If your running your sled bone stock on the track, theres a problem with your method.

All I can see is covers, and his snowmobile does indeed use shocks. http://www.snowmobilefanatics.com/gallery/image/173958-original.jpg
