Holy cow, what an upgrade to the back end of my 2016 ZR6000. I was bottoming out even after having the shock re-valved so did some digging and came across the Raptor spring. It's a triple rate made for a Polaris but fits the Cats. There is absolutely no slack in the spring at all even with the collars turned down all the way.

It's sooo much smoother than the stock double rate with absolutely no bottoming out even on hard whoops and sharp dips. I'm 240lbs with gear and it totally transformed my sled.

This is not a sales pitch, just a shout out to those who are struggling like I was. For $60 plus shipping, it's the best and cheapest upgrade I've done so far.

Hope this helps someone else. :buttrock::buttrock::buttrock:

Do you have a link to purchase the spring? I’ve got a 15 ZR 8000 and I bottom the front skid often also
Just posted the link above and it will take care of your problem. I was laughing in my helmet every time I braced for impact but glided through it. Hahahaha!

The web sight says out of stock. Or am I looking at the wrong product.
Could be. I bought one about 3 weeks ago and rode 500 miles on it at the end of last week and weekend in the UP. Give them a call to get an update or wait until next year because it's seriously worth the wait.

I have been looking at these as well. I was thinking of running all 4 of them. Thanks for the review as I was on the fence with it.

Funny you say that because my last trip I ran ski Float 3s ressies with Evolve chambers and was not overly impressed. At Haydays this year I'm going to look for high/low speed compression only IFPs and add the front ski Raptor springs.

No fitting issues with the raptor on 16 800 sno pro? Sounds like a good upgrade and reviews and a lot less the hygear. I know hygear has great products but this looks like a similar product.

Raptor center/rear shock spring - WOW!!!y

No issues fitting on a ‘17 ZR8000 so don’t see it being a problem on a ‘16.

Just ordered mine today. Haven't rode the sled yet, but I don't want one that is known to bottom out either. For $60 I'll take my chances that this is the fix based on the consensus here. Thanks for the info
