Don't waste your time with the BB's. Just get the Isovibe kit from Grip and Rip. I've used this for years, works amazing.Does anyone remember the Polaris Fusions if so , one of the fixes for the tremendous vibration that these sleds had was to remove one of the grips and fill the handlebar full of bb's , I know it sounds gimmicky but I have done this many times on Polaris sleds & Arctic Cats also it actually works pretty well and is virtually free , I have 2 2020 Indy xc's and when I replace the motor mounts with 4 of the PTO side mounts I will be doing this to both of them.

I'm 56...started using these around age 50. As you get older you start to notice the little things that cause fatigue at the end of the day. Vibration is one of them. I don't jump the sled...it's all about comfort. The Isovibe's work great. Even use them on my motorcycle.Hey Len
You’ve really found that the 800 has enough vibration to warrant this for trail riding or are you doing a lot of hard jumping/landing etc. I’ve never found the vibration to be much myself, but I only ride trails.

I noticed the vibrations starting to get to my nerves (lol!) with my 2011 SBA. Got much better after swapping in wossner pistons though.I'm 56...started using these around age 50.

Put my 2019 XC 850 in shop Friday. Raised it up, removed belt, installed my alignment bar todayLater today or tomorrow, I expect to develop a measuring tool based off my factory alignment bar. It will quickly show you what your real c-c is. And, how much the engine moves backwards under ratchet strap load.
I'll have pics to explain it.:bc:
Probably not.This is great stuff. So, if you see your mounts with the fingers all wore off and the mount looks like a round rubber circle, they still may be OK.
Spent some time Sunday rechecking my c-c and clutch alignment more precisely.Put my 2019 XC 850 in shop Friday. Raised it up, removed belt, installed my alignment bar today
Much to my surprise, the original forward engine twist seems to be a bit less. Almost two years or so ago, I measured about a .028" gap at front of the secondary and about .050+" at back. C-C measured 10.706". .081" too much.
I now have about .010-.015" in front and maybe .020-.025 at rear. I'll measure this with feeler gauges to get an exact number tomorrow.
I then measured exactly where the front of the secondary lines up with my tool and scribed a mark on the tool. I also scribed a 2nd mark on the tool where it lined up with the rear of the secondary. It measured exactly 8 5/8" between those marks. Halfway between those marks is the exact center of the secondary. I then scribed a 3rd mark on the tool on that center. I now have the location of where the center of the secondary is on my tool.
I then went to the other end of the tool to find the center of the primary. By design, it's halfway between the two small stubs that locate the tool.
I scribed a 4th mark on the tool at that location.
Measuring towards the rear 10.625", I scribed a 5th mark on the tool. The difference between that mark and the 3rd one is the amount of forward twist/excessive c-c. Mine appears to be about .030-.040". I will now double check what the exact measurement is by removing the secondary and determining just how accurate that measurement really is.
Then, I'll then reinstall the secondary and install a ratchet strap and see how far the engine twists backward under simulated load.
Info and Pics to follow tomorrow..
