Internal bypass shocks

Does anyone know if Fox or King has a stock replacement internal bypass shock already valved and sprung for the XP1000?

I believe that King has a setup. Last I heard, they were just over $4000.00 bucks for the set.

I'm thinking about buying the rear two and see the difference they make. If they make a huge difference I would buy the fronts. What do you think?

That would be a good idea. My WE shocks up front are dialed in just about perfect. I still have some issues with the rear being a bit stiff. Seems most people are having rear shock issues (other than making them into bananas), so running kings on the back may be all that you need. The question is, is it worth the $2k plus?

Re: Internal bypass shocks

Big Dan we're going to wait and give King some time to perfect it's XP1000 set-up.
$2K to $4K is a lot of lettuce to lay out this soon IMHO. Seems to off-the-shelf at this point.

Friends that got Kings for their 900's like them if they were given to them promotionally free, or they sell them. Those that bought them didn't feel any difference.

But,, in our case we're looking at a more reliable shock in addition to performance. And ya get that great service and back-up from King.
And yeah,, they look bad ass until they get sand blasted after a day on the dunes.

Next season maybe Kings for us.

Good thoughts, I think I'll wait a few months and see what hits the market. I'm a Fox guy but I know King has a great product. We'll see who comes out with the best choice first.

I was out at Ocotillo Wells this weekend and I am really tired of the rear rebound bucking through the whoops. The front seems great but the rear sucks. If they worked as well as my Fox triple bypass on my sandrail I would gladly spend 4k.

Re: Internal bypass shocks

I paid full retail for my King shocks on my RZR 900 and love them. They made a huge difference.

Have you softened up the preload? Polaris, for whatever reason, ships them set fairly stiff. I think Frank took 4 or 5 whole turns out of his rear shocks.

Nevermind I found them on your site:
Hcr xp900 long travel kit

You paid full retail, and you're a re-seller?
Sorry Pat,, ain't buying it.
You're talking to a businessman.
