I hear people talk about "Fat Boy" rear torsion springs but am not able to find anything under that name search.
Any suggestions.................... I need a set for a 04 700 XCSP

Thanks !

I think you mean the optional polaris heavy duty rear torsion springs.
Part# 7041940-067 LH spring
Part# 7041941-067 RH spring
Unless your well over 250 lbs. these springs will be too stiff. Its advised to revalve the rear shock to compensate if going to heavier springs. Your polaris dealer is the best source unless you find someone here has a set they want to sell.

You could also go with some aftermarket adjusting cams that have a 4th "overload" position. They're called X-Clicks. You can get them from Shadetree, SLP, or High Perf. Engineering 40.-42. for the pair - or about half the price of ONE of those springs. They work.

If you have plenty of front end now, you could also add a little preload to the front skid spring to help out in the rear. Don't try that if you're already pushing though....

If that doesn't work, there are other ways to help. Just holler. -Al (285lbs)
