Local Dealer says, yes the crosslink will fit. Someone I ride with has an 03 F7 SP that he put the crosslink out of an 03 440 wrecked race sled and put it in his F7 in late Feb. He would compare the change in ride like going from a half ton pickup to a 1 ton pickup.

I have read some that the cross-link has been pulled from next years
line-up. I was going to order a sno-pro next week but without the
cross-link, it's just a matter of shocks to me since I want the 1-inch
track. Is it because they still haven't got it 100% or something else?

The 03 Cross-link seemed to really work well since they changed to the 2 inch rear shock.

Main reasons for non-consumer sleds is cost.It is costly to rebuild & it needs to be serviced on a regular basis.I have been told every 300 miles or every other race.Most places charge 75-100$ to service.

The shocks get mushy at 200 miles and are wiped out by 280 when going hard over the bumbs and catching big air. He would not recommend a crosslink in a typical consumer sled, as most consumers will not want to rebuild the shocks after going out for a long one day ride. The crosslink also requires alot more regular service work.

Thanks for the response guys. What shocks would you recommend for an
agressive trail rider. Iwas thinking of the sno-pro, but with no cross-link, I
might as well put the extra $500 or so towards a set of after-market clickers
or something right? I rode a standard F7 this year and a ZR600 last year. I
had the ZR600 shocks rebuilt a couple times but the F7 I just rode it the
whole year. I know I should have done the shocks, because they were real
soft at the end.

Or get some Fox Zero Pros, nice shocks for the price.
02SnoPro & teamgreen02,

Do either of you have these installed on your Firecat's? I have seen no-one or nowhere that sells these shocks and I have been to Fox's site and they give an overview of these shocks but nothing about price.... Could you tell me how much the Fox ZeroX they are selling for? Thanks!

oh, 1 other question I have about this topic. When a person orders, say these ZeroX shocks for thier particular sled, how do they come valved/set-up or do they custom valve them per order and then send them out to the consumer??

Give Carver Performance in MN a call.They stock all of Fox's line of shocks I believe.Or there website is www.carverperformance.com .I have had them service my Cross-link & installed the 03 rear shock from the Sno Pro.

As far as the Fox Zero-X shocks they are sold valved generic for the sled you have I believe.They are stiff to say the least but are adjustable for compression & rebound.
