Anybody know, or have any thoughts, if this upgrade is worth/makes a noticable change for the $139 they want? I was thinking about installing one on my 97 MXZ 670?

Wow Ohio, this is like deja vu. Me & my buddies were just talking about this two nights ago over coffee. I've got the exact same sled with the A.D. Boivin upgrade. We were just reading an article about the ride control and what not and d**ned if I can't find the article now. Basically what it boils down to is that the upgrade does little to improve the ride quality, but gives a bit better control. As soon as I find the article, I'll put the quote in here for you.

I put that same upgrade on my 1997 Ski-Doo Formula Z 583. I felt that it really was a big improvement in the stutter bumps. The rear skid in that machine is the SC-10, by adding the Boivin upgrade, you've effectively made it a SC-10 II, which came out on that sled in 1999 or 2000. Would I do it again? You bet! Anything that I can do to make my riding more enjoyable is worth it, seems once I hit 40, I dont bounce as well as I used to. Good Luck.

It sure does work. I had it on my 99 machZ. Night and day difference, no more bucking you off the sled.

Hey

Do want the reduced kick back and better
ride without the loss of weight transfer? I
have made my own kit that gives you full control
of the A.C.M but, with the added benfits of
Front- to- rear coupling. Basicly making the
sc-10 like the sc-10 2,3. Questions?

Its not a homemade ets. Its a better design,
cheap, and better suited for EVERYONE. This is
a coupler that can be ajusted to suit everyones
needs and uses the stock suspension componets.
