Wondering how hard and expensive it would be to retrofit the smart shock setup onto an older sled??

martin has the Maxx working with the SS
but it would still be stupid expensive
cheaper and easier just to buy a SS sled

BRP has not loaded pricing and availability for any of the required parts, (I don't see that changing this season). 3 shocks, 1 controller, wiring, connectors, 5 sensors, lots of brackets and shields...…. I would guess $6K-$8K or way more. BRP says no plans to offer a retrofit. With enough money anything can be done though ;)

Probably will cost more than buying a used Mach next fall. I'd hold off anyway so others can ''field test'' them for a few years. Remember those 1000 Mach's ...

Are you not happy with the air-wave? I sold my Enduro, was going to by out a guys snow check with smart shox $$$ but decided to buy a 2021 (used) VR1 650 instead for this year.

I really wanted the Smart Shox but I think the 2023 XRS will get some type of update (new headlight????) so figure I’ll wait, hopefully get to demo a smart shox sled this season first…..

I absolutely love my Airwave. Best suspension for insulating the rider from trail junk - hands down, end of conversation. Started some weekend drag racing last season and it’s weight transfer and starting line abilities are a major liability however.
Throwing in a pimped out RMotion for this year. With that said, it got me wondering just how far I could take the rMotion.

Wouldn’t be cheaper if I wanted to still have 350+ trail hp.

Haha! True dat. Heck, between the Airwave and now this pimped out rMotion I’m going with for this season, I’ll prolly have 5K wrapped up in rear skids over the years on this. Sled. What’s a few K more? Lol
