Ski-Doo’s new r-Motion skidframe comes standard with in-tunnel preload adjustment and gloves-on compression adjustment of both in-tunnel shocks.
However, available optionally (Spring Break) are out-of-tunnel adjusters for both spring preload and rear arm shock compression damping.
The preload adjuster is ultra slick, employing a hydraulic pump mounted on the left rear running board connected to a small hydraulic cylinder cradling the torsion spring pig tails.
This is a must-have feature and makes preload adjustments easier than on any sled in history.
Also, the compression clicker moves out and onto the right running board connected to the rear shock remote reservoir by a braided steel hose.
For MY 2012 the r-Motion rear suspension is only available on the MX-Z X package and XRS models. You’ll have needed to Spring Break order one of these sleds to get a copy.
If you’re looking for an r-Motion model we can unequivocally state the remote tunnel mounted adjuster thingy is a mandatory option.
You’ll definitely wish you’d shelled out for this superb feature.
