Owners of Ski-Doo REV-XS, REV-XP and REV-XR sleds with 42” wide front ends can upgrade their sled to the new RAS 2 front suspension, and ALSO get the new spindles that allow the use of the brand new adjustable Pilot TS skis! We were able to get over 1,000 miles on the new adjustable Pilot TS skis at the end of last year and can validate the benefit of being able to dial in the exact amount of ski bite for changing conditions. Add to this the flatter cornering and lighter steering effort from the RAS 2 suspension geometry and this kit gives owners of older sleds a good way to benefit from the latest technology. The kit is actually a bargain as it includes the a-arms, new spindles AND a set of HPG Plus R (KYB) shocks, all for only $539.99. Order #860 201 241.
For sleds already fitted with the RAS 2 front suspension there are two different Pilot TS Conversion kits available that include everything you need to mount the Pilot TS skis – one of them is for sleds that already have the 2016 RAS 2 spindles or the above kit installed (#860 201 237 for $549.99), the other is for 2015 sleds with the RAS 2 spindles (#860 200 692 for $649.99).
Both of these kits have a set of the adjustable Pilot TS skis, the first one for 2016 sleds that didn’t come with the Pilot TS skis, and the second one for 2015 sleds already fitted with the RAS 2 front end. All other sleds would need to install the RAS 2 conversion kit (above) and then add the Pilot TS kit. Order any of these conversion kits from your local Ski-Doo dealer.
