Default T-motion suspension for 06 rev?

Yesterday I installed a t-motion suspension upgrade in my dads sled(08 summit) and was wondering how hard it would be to mod the kit to fit my sled (06 summit). Has anyone looked at doing this or know why it wouldn't work?

my take is that the 06 was a dream to ride and i don't think you would benefit much from the t motion. how much is the kit?

The kit is $350ish. I think it would make a big difference. I haven't rode my Dad's sled yet but just in the garage it was way easer to roll on its side. I think you will see it on all the new mountain sleds in a few years.

Brp says it fits all sc5 m suspensions, so I don't recall what the 06 rev's had but it may just be mounting points? Anything is possible with lots of tools and beer. But you may not benefit from the t motion exclusively the new xm has inner boogie wheels and another key part is that flex edge track a lot softer than regular tracks so it may bee not worth trouble unless you get the track as well.

I wouldn't mess with t-motion for the 06'. Just lose the sway bar and stiffen the front shocks a bit. You will be able to throw it around with ease. A little counter steering helps too.

I know we are not buying into the whole floppy track and suspension till we see how it holds up to a season of abuse.

Between the line designs has a tool for breaking off the outer portion of a standard track to make it wishy washy, also waiting to see how a track holds up to a season riding before we do anything. Have a 2011 that could be upgraded if it does work tho.

I would either break the rods in your track with this or get a flexEdge track from Doo before I'd put the tMotion on it.
The Rev (Prior to XP) rolled over like a dog wanting his nutz scratched already!

Put the rear wheels inside the rails too, THAT alone makes a big difference.

I looked hard at the xm, the flexing rear is a small piece of the puzzle, the flex edge track and 2 wheels are doing most of the work.

Already have the two wheel set-up and just finished with the track, it rolls over VERY smoothly now without jerking the bars.
BIG difference.
Now to seal all the little holes to keep the water out and wait impatiently for snow to test it!

Looked at one on Saturday and we decided to wait to convert our 11 to see how it holds up, I reserve my judgement and don't think it will hold up at home here.
