Default 2014 600 sport suspension upgrade

I know this has been discussed, I just can't seem to find any solid info on this. I just got a 2014 600 sport for my wife/backup lightweight screamer for me. It seems a great reliable package with the known exception of the shocks.


Sorry for the redundancy on these questions, they've likely been hashed over.



Will a Rmotion bolt right into this, or is there more involved?


Priority first?... (rear skid shocks replacement or front shocks?)


As this is a budget sled, I want to try and keep it that way and not spend 2K with Hygear or anyone else.


If I buy used x package or xrs shocks, they need to come from and SC5 skid?.......or are Rmotion and SC5 shocks interchangable?


I know, a lot of questions but I really appreciate info from anyone that has experience with this.


Thanks in advance.

Sorry, but a R-Motion skid is not a direct bolt in, and I don't believe the R-Motion and SC5 shocks are interchangeable. Although, with good shocks, the SC5 is not a bad rear skid. All 4 Motion Pro shocks are JUNK, I would bite the bullet and replace all 4 at once, otherwise the ride will be very imbalanced.

Last I knew, Ski-Doo offered the following shock upgrade kits for the SC5.

REV-XP / REV-XS Front Clicker Shock Kit -- Part # 860200104 (in addition, I think you will also need coil springs and spring retainers):

REV-XP 120" SC-5 Clicker Rear Skid Shock Kit -- Part # 860200888:

My advice would be to call Ian at Monster Performance (518-320-5704) and get a set of 4 used (and freshly rebuilt) TNT shocks. My guess is he will sell you a set of 4 for $500 to $600.
