They may be too long, how long are the XX shocks eye to eye?

Plus, a YFZ is a lot lighter than an XX, so they may be too soft.

What shocks fit the 700xx front. I heard polaris somewhere ,but model and type.
Was going to buy a set of LT-R but I do not like the position of the rezzies.

The issue is that the top mount on the XX it's very narrow. Most shock mounts are 25mm (1") wide but the XX has 20mm wide top mounts. You can't fit the shocks in to the mount on the frame......(LTR450 don't fit).

Its a real PITA........If I was looking I would have a go with some stock Can-Am DS450 fronts and I would look at useing the stock XX front springs.

Couldn't you just remove the metal to make it narrower from the shock? It seems like a lot of work, but so does swapping springs.
Yeah you could turn down the top of the shocks to make it narrower and I dont see why that wouldn't work.

Changeing springs is easy, just slide the bottom mount off and the springs will come off with it.

Also in the Gt Thunder page they have a pretty good writeup on setting your shocks.

Did you ever put those Can Am on and how are they doing, was the install hard or was it an easy install.
