Picked up my dad's '06 700 fusion yesterday and took a couple of pics of them side by side to compare the rear suspension mounting points and upgrades (not sure if anyone has done this yet).

The main thing I noticed is that the brackets that the '06 mounts to are the exact same as the ones on the '05. The '05's are just mounted in the tunnel and the '06's are drilled out and mounted in the bracket itself under the tunnel. Does this mean I can just drill them out and gain 2" of travel?

Another thing I noticed is that the rear rear scissor stops now have 2 places to mount the rails. I was planning on drilling mine out and moving them back 1/2" anyways, but I am wondering if I should just make a template and just copy the '06 pattern.

Check out the pics...

I priced the EPI kit out at the dealership yesterday for $280. Did anyone put it in themself? I've never worked with TEAM clutches and am a little leary of tearing into it. The tech that's been doing all the recalls on my sled said that its easy to do because you dont have to preload the spring in the secondary clutch.

Any input?

As long as you have a tool to compress the spring it’s easy. A couple things to be careful of is make sure you weren’t in reverse before you take the belt off. The helix actually locks the secondary so it won’t open when in reverse and you strip out the threads when you try to open the clutch to take the belt off. Use a good torx wrench when removing the screws on the helix have seen them striped out and it’s a pain to remove them then. Then you have to need to use a spring compressor to remove the c-clip and roller assembly to remove the spring. I'll try to send you a PM with some information that my help.

all you need is a spring compressor after that its easy. otherwise just take your clutch to your dealer have them compress the spring and change it. or u could make one for about $5 like i did.

I took a look at that part of the skid also, but I can't remember seeing anything that was obviously different. I will check it out tomorrow afternoon and let you know. Maybe I can post some better pics then also.

Ok, I did some more comparing today and made some conclusions:

1) Although the skiis look totally different, the keels are almost exactly the same. I did not take a measuring tape to them, but visually the bottoms look identical.

2) I checked the part numbers and on the '05 the rear rear lower mount ends in an 8801 and the '06 ends in an 8802. Once again visually I cant see a difference.

3)I took some engine bay pics also. 2 things that jump out are the shielding on the pipe by the airbox ( I was planning on header wrapping my pipe anyways) and the different mounting for the coolant/oil containers.

Check the pics out...

The Dual runners sucked, so I left the outers and removed the inners and ran it for the rest of the season. I am going to a single full length carbide this winter which should change the way it corners all together. I'm not a balls out rider so it wasn't a big deal.
