This is a new brace kit to strengthen the weak Upper A Arm mounting points on the new XP chassis. As many of you know the A Arm mounting points can bend from impact before the A Arms bend causing expensive repair. The A Arm should bend before the chassis so you can change an A Arm instead of having to do a complete rebuild of the front end because of a bent mounting point.
A common problem is when you hit something with the ski turned it pushes the bottom of the spindle back. The Lower A Arm is stronger than the Upper A Arm and because of this it will force the upper A Arm forward and bend its rear mount. Some will not notice it right away but if you look at your shock and if its not in the center of the Upper A Arm or rubbing on the A Arm you most likely have a bent Upper A Arm rear mounting point. You can still ride like this if its not too bad but it will drastically change the caster angle of your spindle and will not handle well.
DOES NOT FIT: the XR chassis with the 1200 4 stroke engine, the 550 fan or the 600/900 Ace. Will fit the chassis with the 600etec engine. Does not work with the Skidoo QRS tech link. But works with the Racewerx clutch tower brace.
This kit will greatly strengthen this weak area.
We recommend the lower a arm brace kit and the suspension module brace kit with this upper kit for maximum protection.
The complete kit weighs 12.7 ounces or .79 lbs.
Fits 2008-2014 Skidoo XP,XM,XS,XRS chassis except for models with the 550 fan engine and the 600/900 Ace.
