I recently bought a 2014 Freeride 146. The rear springs are on the highest setting and the rear sags down much farther than it should. I lift the rear by hand and it drops back down. I'm bottoming out a bit too easily as well. I have put stiffer torsion springs in all of my previous sleds and it was a great improvement. I'm wondering what the next spring is up from stock. I'll probably add the spacers as well but I know that won't be enough. I have had spacers and touring machine springs in previous sleds. I haven't had anything as long as a 146" before. I was impressed with how I could ride it on very rough trails. Bottoming the front and rear a bit much so the shocks are being revalved and the torsions are being upgraded. Are the torsions the same length for 137's and 146's? Thanks for any info!

I checked the microfiche and the 146/154 freerides have the same torsion springs. 137 freeride is a different number. All renegade models have the same torsion spring numbers(different from 137 freeride). I'm thinking they are a different length.

 

Stock 146/154 freeride torsions: 136/137(last three of the part numbers)

Expedition: 270/271

Expedition LE: 377/378

Grand Touring: 270/271

Grand Touring LE: 538/539

Grand Touring Sport: 270/271

 

Looks like three to choose from. Anyone know the spring rates on these or where to find them?

Try searching Monster Performance - I think he had a chart that had everything broken down.

Thanks guys, I did some more searching and it seems like the 270/271 springs are the way to go. It took me a while to figure out that they will fit in a 146" sled. I'm not sure what length machine requires different length torsions. I found a post with a guy saying he put them in his 154" summit. Lots saying they put them in their 137's. I'm in the middle so I'm sure they'll work out. They're on my workbench now awaiting install!

I had the 270/271 on my 2013 BCX (137'' R-motion) and I also have them on my 2016 BCX (146'' T-motion)
