I've searched all over and haven't found any confirmation of this swap being done. It was talked about but never picked back up. I've got a line on a set of shocks and would like to know if it is in fact possible. I'm sure a couple other xx riders out there would be pleased to know as well!!

I actually PM'd him and he messaged me back last night. He got the install done with modification to the upper shock mount. He had to make the mount half as thick and notch part of it for the shock it sit properly and then with a little finessing, it worked. He said he was going to get some pics up of the finished result.

As per Sonic007:
Ya, they are modified and mounted...quite a bit of modifying the top mount....you have to make the top mount about half as thick, then on the inside edge of the mount you have to notch it in to clear the factory mount position...a little massaging of the mount on the bike and they fit great...i havent ridden it yet, still snow on the ground here....my only concern would be the integrity of the new thinner top mount....but for the price, you cant beat the set-up...I'll post a finish pic soon.

Finally got around to getting mine done!!! It took about 20 minutes of grinding on the shocks to get them down to the right size and 10 minutes on the shock mounts. Just remember...measure twice, cut once! The only thing I used was a Dewalt 4" grinder. It really helps to have a vice to hold the shock while you grind on it. This adventure cost me a total of $100 for the shocks...shipped! It now handles like a different machine! You won't be disappointed with this mod!
