I would be interested on the price in Sweden. In Finland the prices are so high that it makes more sense to buy Totaltek instead.

Yes, you can order it from your dealer.
Torsion spring part numbers are:
left: 7041627-067
right: 7041628-067
You'll have to have them look up the part number for the Indy XC RTS. Good luck!

Yes it is in 2018 catalog: 1100 eur. Higher price is because it is PDS version. Total length 492mm. Old 144” has 425mm long damper with price of 990eur. I have not idea how much you can get off of the catalog price.

I'm really having a hard time understanding why the WE's that come on the SBA's aren't giving you everything you need. I can fully understand changing the spring if your sag settings aren't correct & revalving if you are not getting full stroke or bottoming.

I've done s lot of tuning on road & dirt motorcycle racing and absolutely understand how high low settings work but I'm just not buying into needing a high low setting for a 50/50 sled? If you ran on frozen solid trails in a CC race situation... maybe?

I think you can set up the WE with proper torsion springs to achieve the same results & again if that doesn't get you there & you have done testing ( measuring stroke ) on different conditions then get them revalved.

For disclosure I'm absolutely not beyond adding things for the sake of having something to play with / the best, but seeing guys adding this when they haven't sorted out the stock WE...?

Don’t buy them. Some of us are looking for the next level that’s all. You cannot make the stock shocks work as well as hi/lo adjustable shocks period.

These are guy's that have rode walkers hard and a ton on SBA for years. They rode the Bypass Velocity shocks last spring and instantly recognized a head and shoulders difference for the better, that's why.
Plain and simple.

I think the parts that having me scratch my head is when I hear you are making spring & shock changes. If the torsion spring rate is not correct for stock it won't be correct for the HL & should be sorted first.

I would associate HL settings more with fine traction / being able to keep the power to the ground in a race condition and not comfort.

I was hoping to see some data / information where you are checking shock travel.

When it bottoms too much I crank it up a notch.
