I believe the NTN bearings were $12 each. I did not change the drive bearings. I just pop the seals off and hand pack new grease into them. Do this at the beginning of every season and they will last the life of the sled.
Thanksfor the info. If you don't mind if you have the part #s for the bearings or a link that would be appreciated. I'd like to replace all mine this off season.

So with the velocity RTS now coming standard in the xcr 128 do you think this is a similar setup? I’m sure it’s valued stiffer, but is there a difference with the progressive damping?

When you say XCR brake, what are you referring to?
Master cylinder? Caliper? Disc/rotor? Pads? Brake lines?

Probably rotor. A drilled/slotted one...

It’s a disk and pads. I believe its the material and how they work together that makes a difference.

I believe NSP has a velocity shock set up for the rts. I would go that route vs using the one from the XC. I would think Rick’s set up would be better since he has set it up specifically for the assaut.

Per the Race Dept., the upgrade is pretty simple and consists of pads, rotor, and cooling scoop from the XCR. If you look up the race dept. tech sheets for the Indy XC (or the older ones for Pro-S), or just the XCR parts fiche, you can find the part numbers. List price is about $350. I think the rotor was the expensive piece, and also on backorder right now.

I installed the XCR brake rotor and pads on my 2019 Indy XC. My stock brake pads were worn out at 3000 miles. Decided to go this route instead of just replacing the pads. The rotor is not a wave rotor like stock. It's just round and cross drilled. Works MUCH BETTER!

we replace any warped rotor with one from the xcr along with the brake pads. it's also cheaper than the wave rotor.

formula NTN bearings are $8.95 ea. at our shop. i have hundreds in stock. these last the best out of all we have tested. but these will still fail after a while 3+ years. but are way better than the bearings Polaris use's. the formula bearings are the only ones designed for snowmobile use. bearings are full of a white low temp synthetic grease. Polaris needs to use idler wheel caps to keep snow/water away from the bearings. go for a ride in snow and look at your idler wheel's. the recess in the wheels where the bearing is gets packed with snow.
