Info on aftermarket shocks and springs.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced the stock shocks and springs on their 2015 Dominator 800 X2 to ride alittle smoother are just changing the springs out.I gotten alittle spoiled riding in my son's rzr 1000xp.

My wife just made a comment why don't ride as smooth as our son's thing.lol

I'm 62 she's 61 the little rough ride doesn't really bother me. I drive a concrete mixer for a living. 

I really like the Odes it's pretty good power for for only 800cc

I took off the cat and the stock muffler. Put a glasspack with 2" inlet and outlet it has a good deep tone and not really very loud. I'll find out Sunday when we hit the woods .It's definitely more peppy.

If you have the black end shocks with gold body and red spring those are rebuildable and revalveable, But with that said usually they are just low on nitrogen or don't have any nitrogen left in them.

I picked up a set of 4 rzr 800 shocks and springs  . We got front put on and wow what a difference. 2 of us pushing Down on the front bumper couldn't get it to give maybe a 1/2 "

The rzr springs are just like when I pressed down on my son's rzr 1000xp. 

I only lost 1/2" of ground clearance down to 12" my steering rack came in today .I'm making new mounts for a rzr rack. Mine broke last week. Broke the mounting tabs off the rack and the frame mounts bent. They were bent when I got the machine. I'm going with hiem joints also. Have extra parts from my son's rzr. We are adding 3 " to the wheel base by use 2018 Yamaha wolverine rear A  arm very little modifications to use them just my opinion. My soninlaw had a new set he has extra.

Rear has 12.5 " of ground clearance now. Had to raise the bed up 3" to clear the shocks. Also moved the bed ram bottom mount to the rear by the back part of the frame. We put a new crossmember in replace of the original shock crossmember because we had to cut it to align the frame.I guess mine was made on a monday after the welder had a bad weekend. Lol the upper frame was out of square. The machine dog tracked bad. Didn't notice it when I bought it..  Soninlaw is a great body man very good at what he does. Still have to make the plate that bolts to the Aarm bushings bolts to hold them in 0place after alignment. 

Hopefully this week we'll get the Polaris steering rack and EPS on. The original brackets for the rack is bent up and twisted up. The new one definitely will be stronger..

This video was with the 2011 Polaris 800 s shocks 
We changed to the fox shocks after that .
It was dark when I took it for a ride tonight when we got done.it still smooth but feels like it has less body role with fox over the stock Polaris ones. The fox shocks were the same length as the Polaris ones.They came off a 700 2 seater wolverine than my soninlaw picked up for his wolverine but wouldn't work different years and his is a 4 seater. So I ended up with them. Have to have the 30" tire put on yet.
With the fox shock I have 12" front and back ground clearance.

      Just finished getting the 30×10×14 on today. My soninlaw had them on when I got home from work. It was raining this evening couldn't go for a ride. The front rubs when they are turned.I might relocate the A arms forward a couple of inches. To get the clearance needed. Sure makes the machine look different. It has the short A arms

      I don't have the extra money to spend for the factory top.$499.00 can buy a few other needed parts.And I enjoy making this kinda stuff anyway. Made a top out of some vinyl  I had left over from a project 35 years ago. I got some eyelets from Harbor freight for $4.00 and a can of spray glue from parts store for $22.00 and a assortment of small bungie from Harbor Freight. I left the mounts for the factory top intact just incase I get one it go back into place. I also put a Super ATV windshield on flip out .I have to say well worth the money spent. The fit was perfect and very easy to install.

      I have 2015 can am maverick 1000r xds turbo. It sat for a month and everything was fine when I parked it. I went to start it last weekend and the check engine light popped up and the check DPS code scrolls across the dashboard.

      Timing chain broke. Replaced the timing chain, oil pump chain, cam & rings. Ran great for 2 hours. Brought it home, started & drove to the shop. Next day started & drove around the property and it started running rough, wouldn’t idle just died, restarted & took it to the shop. Next day wouldn’t even start just crank over. Drained all the fuel & replaced with new, bought a new plug & ecu! Fired right up and let it run for an hour & burped the coolant as I had double checked the timing & valves prior. Next day started it and it was running a bit rough but smoothed out & ran for another hour. Next day it just cranks & won’t start! I’m at my wits end with this machine and would appreciate any help or suggestions on what might be the issue. Thanks in advance!

      Hey guys...I have a 2015 ODES Dominator X4 800cc...I had recently tore the belt up and was able to get a new one on and had no problems.  The other day I got stuck and smoked the clutch out a bit trying to get out and since that time I have had a constant "clicking" noise coming from the primary clutch.  Then noise is present at idle and low speeds but goes away under load.  I took the clutch apart and assume that this noise is coming from either the clutch sliders/weights or shoes.  I plan on replacing these soon.  
      However, today I put the clutch back together to get the bus out there and ride around the neighborhood and I have a "jolty" start and while cruising in "H" the secondary clutch suddenly opens wide and I lose power.  When revved the secondary clutch will not grab and continues to open.  I can place the UTV back into "N' and then back to "H"...the secondary clutch stops spinning and the belt grabs as normal and I can continue on.  Anyone have any idea what is going on or have experienced similar problems?
