Recommended Shock Service Intervals: ALL shocks are plagued by sludge from condensation, moisture seeping by the seals, contamination from internal friction, and oil breakdown. An initial oil change is the most important to flush out the break-in oil and metal shavings. By the time a sled has 3,000-4,000 miles (aggressive riders will have this problem sooner) the oil is contaminated with over 25% water.
Initial or first time service: 500-1,000 miles flushes break-in sludge and particles, then follow regular schedule.
Groomed Trail: every other year or 2,000-3,000 miles.
Aggressive Trail: yearly or 1,000-2,00 miles.
Racing: 2-4 times per season (depending upon type of competition and rider level).
Know It All Rider: Never, he thinks shock oil never needs changing on any shocks and goes forever. Either hard headed or just plain dumb?
Our Sno Pro 500’s rode terrific. We put on over 200 miles and I was now in control going over bumps as the sled would continue straight vs bouncing left and right. My wife noticed the same thing and she definitely looked more in control vs vertically bouncing off the seat with every bump. Thanks again and also for the phone tech support which was totally unrelated to the suspension kit. You will make me a small engine mechanic yet. Jeremy & Nicole E.
Thanks for the great shock work! The Stage 2 kit on my 2013 Sno Pro 1100 is just the ticket for a great ride. Did not do anything but install shocks as you specified. I have more than 1500 miles on the sled now, just a great trail setup. Allan S.
The Ride Tech 2 package for my Rush 800 was outstanding for all around handling and in hardcore whoops it had excellent and predictable handling. Forget buying performance mods for the engine, if the sled handles correctly you will pass all your buds and stay ahead of them with the Ride Tech package. Jamie H.
