Hi - new to the forum and appreciate your input-

 

Picked up a 2012 Renegade Adrenaline this past year and overhauling the suspension.  Needed to replace the track and since it is out...

Considering a complete skid swap.

Have a possible RMotion 129" at a reasonable price that may be a better option that sticking a lot of $$ into an SC-5 with non-rebuildable shocks (new Fox Zero Pros for $425 + other replacements on the skid).  

 

My machine:  2012 Renegade Adrenaline SC-5 137"  XP Chassis  (standard Skidoo 137 x 1.25 x 15" track, studded).

 

Newer skid:  RMotion 129" off of a 2017 MXZ TNT XS Chassis  (HPG Rebuildable shocks)  

Would need to get a set of Tracks USA DOO-XR-4 rail extensions to make it a 137.

 

I've read two forums that talk about this.

https://www.dootalk....-pics-and-info/

https://www.dootalk....xp-sc5-chassis/

 

It sounds like if you buy the front and rear mounting brackets for an RMotion, you remove the old brackets, adjust to different pre-drilled mounting holes, install the brackets and everything should line up perfect.  

 

Can someone confirm?  

Do you advise this approach?  

Any one have pics they could share of the mounting on the 2017 MXZ TNT?  with measurements?  (Center to Center, positions)

 

Thanks!

TL

I believe that track is 16" wide on the 2012

I actually have a 2016 129 sled with the skid out right now. I will try to remember to take a few pics and measurements tomorrow evening.

If I do not post them, PM me to remind me.

Later

It's not what you do, It's how you do it.... It's not what you've got, It's how you use it.
