Anybody who has their 21 xrs, have the rebound clickers been removed? I haven’t seen one in person.
I know the 20.5 didn’t have rebound. Seems like they were able to shorten the front shocks by doing this, and possibly lower the ride hieght

Cool. I rode a 20.5 for a full day, and honestly I loved that sled. Certainly seemed slightly less stiff than a normal xrs, but it rode and handled really nice.

I am hoping the production 21’s ride similar to the early release sled. The last couple years xrs’s have been to tall in the front.

On one hand it sucks to loose rebound, but I think lower ride height will be a welcome change. Time will tell how these sleds actually perform.

I would pay for premium shocks over a fancy new gauge

I agree, I love the way my XRS handles. I can do with out the gauge, still going to use my own gps anyways.

Why does anyone think the shock is shorter because rebound was removed? Pretty sure the new shocks will be longer for the new front end however I have not seen a measurement yet.

Removing rebound does nothing for shock length. It’s a cost reduction. And 95% of people do not know what the comp or rebound adjustments on their XrS do. Therefore they get their settings so off they think there sled handles like dog "edit for bad language" and sit on the bar stool and trash the product.

I have a pair of 17 g4 pro 40’s sitting here that I will likely run on my 21 Xrs depending on new shock length.

X/tnt shocks have been shorter than XRs for G4. Less stroke as well.

Have you ever looked at a kyb shock with rebound!?!?!, the aluminum block which contains the adjuster screw, is at least an inch tall. This ads to the overall length of the shocks.


Previous lengths where 18.75 for xrs vs 17.5 for tnt.

Obviously ski-doo went cheaper here.

But I will be very curious to find out actual shock length on the new sleds.... the 20.5 I rode seemed lower and more planted in the front, but I don’t actually know for sure. Thats why I asked

I service all my own shocks. From works showa moto stuff to fluff KYB pro 40. Sling some shims here and there

If the eyelet housing the rebound adjuster was the only reason the shock was longer than X/TNT it would have the same stroke, which it does not.

I don’t have any TnT stuff on hand but I don’t think the g4 tnt/x were in the 17.5 range. That seems more like XS/XP. I thought it was 18” or 18.125. I shortened my g4 pro 40’s internally 1/4” to bring the front a little lower. This is why I’m curious to see what the new one is as well.
