UPDATE: 13 MAY 19 All bushings have been sold as of now. If you are interested in a set of bushings please send me a pm or reply to this thread and i will put our name on the list for the next run. I need at least ten people to be interested to make another run!

Below is a list of forum members in for a set:

AXYS rear skid bushings

-Issue I noticed: The rear mounting points where the rails mount to the rear crank arm are very loose and can move from side to side a lot. I thought this was odd; previously only having had conventional suspension in my past mounted inside the tunnel; they never had this much side to side movement. If you look closely at some sleds with more miles the black arm connected to the rail starts to wear into the aluminum bushing. First i thought it was just the rear mounting points but then noticed the front mounting points inside the tunnel use the same bushings as in the rear.

-My solution: Instead of the bushing just being a sleeve I have added a flange on the one end to take the side thrust load of the skid shifting side to side.


Here are a couple vids of the issue.
This is my sled:


This is a brand new sled at a dealership. Granted it has like 8 mi on it; its still new:

This is a 17 XCR on the showroom floor:


This picture is of a worn inner bushing from a friends sled, notice on the left how the shoulder has worn away from the rear crank arm contacting it.



Here is a vid of the side to side movement after the install of my bushings. Notice there is still a slight amount of side to side movement to ensure things will pivot more smootherlerly.

I will be selling these in sets of 4.
-For the Rush style rear suspension two bushings replace the two rear position bushings and the other two are used where the front torque arms mounts to the tunnel. -Flange goes towards the inside of the sled in both locations.

-For the new IGX skid in the assaults the bushings go in the front and rear position of the front torque arm. So upper and lower front torque arm mounts.



Feel free to pm me to purchase a set of 4 for $60.
(Rush style: Two bushings for rear lower crank arm to rail mount, and two bushings for front torque arm to tunnel mount. IGX: Still four bushings for the four mounting points of the front torque arm. Includes shipping cost unless your somewhere far far away.)
I will be shipping these via USPS bushings wrapped in bubble wrap within a padded envelope.

If anyone has questions feel free to call or txt me @ 612 205 5324

Thanks


Kent

Yeah i sold a friend of mine a set and when he installed them he ended up replacing the inner metal bushing as the flange part was very worn from the side load.
