I have the F7SP, and so far I think Cat did a lousy job w/ the suspension. I revalved all my shocks. The rear is pretty good now, but the front shocks still suck! Has anyone tried other shocks like Works, Elka, or Ryde FX? I want to get new shocks, but I don't know who is reputable. Anyone?

I will be putting Elka suspension all the way around for next year.
Probably going to get Elka "elites" w/ Remote Rezzys that have high and slow speed compression adjustments and single speed rebound dampening.
Due to the length of the front shock I would assume they will come in as tripple or even quad rate springs and SSD (self sagging device)
Should be a large improvement over the stock sno pro suspesion.

I've thought about the Elka, and want to do something this summer. Too bad your not trying them this year. lol Nice shee, do you talk on bansheehq.com? You do know that axis makes shocks for sleds too, don't ya. They are the best for ATV, but I don't how they are on the sled department.

Get Ryde FX with clickers! you will love them!
Do you have these now? Have you ridden a sled w/ them? Trying to get a feel of everyones oppions on different brands and experiences before I spend $2000 in suspension.

I believe they are around $1000-1100 for a pair of front shocks. I thought about the works front shocks. They are $400 for a pair, but don't have compression or rebound adjustments. I race ATV's though, and found the valving perfect on aftermarket front shocks. So there is no need for the compression and rebound adjustments. If the aftermarket shocks are good enough, then you shouldn't have to have the adjustments.
