You were bottoming that torque arm hard! XC cross shaft and a shock revalve/rebuild and the spring.

What a read. I have a 2015 XF HighCountry sno pro, will this spring fit my front skid shock? Seems people are loving this. I don't really bottom my sled out, but I will take any more cushion I can get!

How do you guys go about adjusting the new spring? Would this be recommended for a 13 F800 and a 15 4000RR?

Hey Guenther;

Got one of those Raptor springs last year for my Cat Turbo. The combo of that plus a revalve from Hygear has totally turned my riding experience right side up again! Honestly its the best riding sled I've ever owned and I've owned many.

My friend has a Ski Doo Etec Adrenaline series and we were riding over a really bombed out trail last year. When we stopped he said are you getting pummeled by those bumps? i said I knew they were there but not really bothering me at all. I let him ride my sled and he couldnt believe how good it was.

Hope this helps, Teamgreen

I think I'm going to order this spring. I've seen a few people on this thread talk about getting their shock revalved in addition to this - what's involved with that?

Glad to hear it, Teamgreen! I bought a set of Raptor ski springs as well this fall to put on my QS3s. Unfortunately I had rotator cuff surgery 7 weeks ago so no riding for me this season. I thought kidney stones were the worst pain a guy could have until this.......

I just put my Raptor spring on and first ride impression is that it helps smooth out the studder bumps for sure better than the stock dual rate spring that it replaced. I would buy one for sure.

I did the full Raptor shock upgrade for all 4 shocks on my daughters 800 XF. Absolutely night and day. It rides like a caddy!
