I can't say enough good things about the M-10.
It is bar-none the best riding skid in the industry.
You can have your choice of 4 different shocks, (which affects the price)
I've got Fox and love it. Your back will love it too.
You can't go wrong in my opinion.

M-10's take alot of abuse and keep coming back, and they ride like a dream, but they don't transfer well at all and the approach angle hurts your topend alot.

good trail skid, terrible racing skid

So true. I think I lost about 5 MPH top end when I put in my M-10. Took away a little of the "slot-car" handling I was used to, but it was more than worth the trade off. It all started with 1 of the guys I ride with getting his, then another, then I had to have one. The first guy got his because he jumps. (a lot) The insurance co. paid for it because he folded his stock skid.
Has had no problems since, breakage wise, but you do need to be sure that your bolts are tight. Good luck on your project.

I've got the m-10 on my polaris700 and I love it - at the end of the day my back is in better shap than anyone elses. But I know first hand what sno pro says about the top end, it does shave a little but you're jumping it so that's fine for you. 14" of rear travel will soak up the landing of some prety big air!!![:D]

The M-10 is the best riding suspension out there. But if your looking at performance the Edge will be better. Not only for power and weight tranfer but also cornering.

ok.. my sled is a 92indy the with a 98 700 slp pipe&can, articrap 2ndary (cvt) 53* helix ,yellow (cvt) spring, blue primary spring , and 10-62 weights ,im spinning 8200-rpm & it flat out rips, well it used to. Now its a tunnel&bulk head on the floor, i v decided that my track is gonna stay a 136x2" i found that "M A S S I V E" JUMPING AND BIG AIR I is done beat on a short track (136) im not intrested in land speed records or climbing MT. Everest, so that leaves me with either the m-10 or the edge suspention, i have no knoledge of the edge.... is there any pros/cons of the m-10 <v's> edge? what about price diffrence performance-diffrence and is this gonna be a difficult installation??

If you want to use the 136" then you'll have to use the Edge 136 or the Edge touring suspension. The M-10 doesn't come in that size. But the touring suspension is similar. As far as mounting just measure where the holes are on a newer sled and drill some new ones.
