Probably as soon as I get my hands on one :)

I have a couple sets of fully adjustable FOX Shox in my garage just waiting to be bolted up to something. I have several sets of different height springs and spring rates as well. So I'm hoping that I have a set that will bolt right up.

They're going to need something quick, the stock stuff is junk. I assume Polaris will have some shitty Walker Evans kit right away, probably Fox within a few months...it will be an essential upgrade.

What else do u guys feel will be crazy factory slash cheap crap on it that will need to be replaced to make it better. Better is in handling

I just felt that the stock stuff was pretty harsh and there's no adjustability of any kind, not even preload...

No doubt stock is improvable, but it some of the harshness must be inherent with the stiff springs and swaybars needed to keep body roll so low.

Are they remote reservoir? I am curious to see if someone will throw one on and how the remote reservoir will be routed/mounted.

Yes they are. They are off my Pikes Peak RZR. I have a set for when the car had 17'' of suspension travel (length for rear shock hopefully) and then a short set for when I slammed it at PP two years ago (fronts).

It might be a long shot, but I think there could be a chance. There will have to be room for the remote reservoir as well.

Looks to me like the rear shock will be super simple. Probably not even a 10 minute job. Worst case I would turn the shocks upside down and run the reservoirs on the bottom side.

Interesting. I thought it was a longer shock than that from a distance but seeing the extended mount on the swingarm squashes that notion.

Should be real easy!
