I have a 2002 ZR800 EFI. I gave alread added a complete snow pro shock package with remotes and a complete rear skid. I am 250 lbs without gear. I have already added a single rate front springs for my weight. I am haveing trouble getting the correct load springs. Have tried 02 ZR CC Heavy Springs. Regular 02 ZR Springs and broke one of those. I am looking at trying a ZR 900 spring but hoping to get some help or part number on here. Any help is greatly appericiated!!


Thank You

You would probably get an answer faster if you posted this in the arctic cat forum.

Can't believe that some sled manufacturers are still using clothes pin style springs yet...maybe someday they will catch up to yammi!

There's a helpful answer. If you knew what you were talking about you'd understand that he probably isn't talking about the torsion springs. Which by the way are still used on plenty of racecars, wether dirt or asphalt, and certain other vehicles. Maybe one day Yammi will be able to figure out they don't need to overengineer everything and make an 800 lb sled.

Fat boy springs are what you want btw.

I'm just curious, because you don't really say what problem you're having, but have you talked with somebody that knows what they're doing with shocks, or that suspension?

Once you've located/installed springs that will run at the ride height you're after, from that point on it's all about shock damping and suspension setup???

Regarding a broken spring, that can happen to anyone, running any springs? Breaking one is not necessarily a sign you're running the wrong springs. FWIW
