which has KYB front shocks 20'' long bigger ressies and ZPS
the rear shock is a KYB with a remote ressie on it

there is a mx package that is 250$

Yea we applied for it to just waiting to hear from them with rider #.
I talked to the BRP rep and he said that pretty much everybody that
applies get in. Hopefully I will hear something from them quick, my son
has raced 3 races with it completely stock. And that's hard to do against
built quads. But he is doing pretty good with it stock, just think when
we get some after market parts on it.

the upgrade packages are just the 09 mx shocks, etc. so don't buy the shocks and a-arms and hope for an upgrade. The pipe will help a ton though.

The suspension is great for being stock. My son was very impressed with the fronts,
the rear sets up to high giving you a real high ride height, but other than that the rear is good to. We sent our rear back with Johnny Hale Sunday after the race
to have it cut down, resprung, and revalved. I just talked to Johnny and he is sending the shock to me I should have it tomorrow. We will try it this weekend
and let yall know how it does. We plan on racing the rest of this year without
doing anything else to it but put gas in it and ride it.

the suspension on the can am was alot better then i thought it would be i was at sunset ridge mx on easter sunday riding and the suspension soaked up all the big hits that i cased the first few times all the knarly braking bumps and the soft whoops i actually like these front and rear shocks better then the PEP big bottle 8 clikcs i had on my YFZ last season they are alot more plush then i expected

They are very soft. When I rode them at a demo ride, I loved them. I have my front end on, I just need to do my rear shock and axle. i cant wait to ride it.

I had my mx at the track and already blew a seal on my front shock...
kinda dissapointed. Racetech had a mx out at the track testing their new revalve and spring kit for the kyb's, I rode it and it works alot better!
Too bad the guys at racetech are kinda cocky and not very friendly!
Gonna have to take it somewhere else!

I'm sure there will be a ton of rebuild kits for the mx shocks out soon. Look at the LTR's, I think these shocks are way better than them too.

ya great program i was acepted to ride in it and its really a awsome program there is alot of opertunites within it. but i only run the parts supplied by the program and the bike is very fast and great power, i think the shocks work great, i'm pretty tall so either way i ride high lol but i got to set it up a bit better hopefully once i get it set up to where i like it i'll start turning faster lap times. :fingersx:

Looks like I need to go to a different dealer, I gave them my application but I don't think they ever turned it in. Almost a month and no response. Also pisses me off that I bought a 09 thinking that it would have the 09 clutch update. I was wrong.
