Weíve got several old sleds (2000 & 2005) with shock absorbers that no longer absorb shocks. Iím pretty sure, but not 100% certain, that they are non-rebuildable. Iím am fixing them up for use mainly as guest sleds. They wonít see that many miles per year but I donít want them to beat up our guests.
I went ahead and ordered a new set of OEM shocks for the 05 Skidoo but the dealer called back and said they were back ordered until sometime in February. This got me to thinking about other possible options and now I have a couple of questions.
1) How can you tell for sure whether a shock is the rebuildable kind or not?
2) How can you figure out what aftermarket shocks will fit? These are old trail sleds. I donít need or want $1,000 air shocks for these things. Most of the aftermarket snowmachine websites Iíve been to are geared towards guys trying to upgrade to the latest performance parts. I just need shocks but donít know where to look other than the dealer.
