    I want to put Outlander 1000 XT max shocks by elka on my XMR and go to a 28in tire. Has anyone tried this as the xmr shocks are mechanically limited which makes for horrible trail riding?
  5. 2008 Outlander 400 Suspension upgrade

  10. Fox Shocks or Spacers

    Just curious to see if anybody has tried both and if there is a significant difference between the Fox Podiums and the Ruberdown Custom Spacers. I am sure the fox shocks would be better, but how much? I am trying to justify the cost of the shocks. I have the spacers now and if the ride is not...
