Our Isovibe SX is a must for a race like Cain’s Quest. The Isovibe isolates your bars from vibration and also absorbs the shock from taking big hits. You will be able to ride harder longer with an Isovibe. I rode this Etec for 50 miles before installing the Isovibe SX and could feel a big difference riding it after. Without it you feel the vibration in the bars and every little bump that you hit and the feedback thru the bars. Once installed it takes alot of the little gars from bumps away, definately smoother too. It’s hard to explain but once you have ridden a sled with an Isovibe you won’t want to ride without one.
To install the Isovibe SX on an XP you need to disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle block and also you need to disconnect the two wires that go under the console to the gauge. I pulled the gauge out using a small flat screw driver to release the two tabs holding it in at the top. It’s really easy to do, you will see the two small slots at the top of the gauge. Once you have the gauge out trace the two wires back that go thru your riser block and disconnect them. Then fish them out thru the slot in the console. Pull the small plug thru first to make it easier to get the larger one thru.
Remove the four bolts with a 10mm wrench that attach the lower clamps to the riser. Lay the riser down flat as shown the the picture below.
Bolt the bottom Isovibe bracket to the bottom of your riser using the supplied bolts. The picture shows the bracket mounted in the low position. This will raise your bars by 1.5″. Flip the bottom bracket over and mount it to the riser if you want to raise your bars by 2.5″. Note: in the high position use the supplied allen head bolts.
Reassemble the Isovibe referring to the directions making sure the shims are in the correct location. Also make sure to feed the two wires thru the Isovibe as shown in the picture below.
Now using your stock clamp halves bolt the Isovibe to the T bar steering post in the desired position. Make sure the throttle cable isn’t routed thru the riser like it was stock. It will need to be routed to the outside as shown in the picture below.
The picture below shows how the two wires need to be routed coming thru the riser and Isovibe. Now you can fish the two wires back under the console, reconnect them and reinstall the gauge.
