Rear end lift kit....?

Does anyone know of a lift kit that was made or would fit a 1983 Polaris Indy Trail? Because mine is so low it's not even funny... I am thinking about putting neon under it and with the ride highth NOW, I would be affraid to do it...

Oh, and the thing takes bumps TERRIBLY... Just wondering if there would be such a thing.. Thanks

Replace your springs, or upgrade it to a newer suspension.

Suspension as in a whole new part? Or a spring/shock?

yep, either overhaul whats in there now or upgrade it. personally, i'd upgrade. when the suspension in my phazer starts to sag it will get thrown out and a newer one put in. wont be for a while yet, when i bought the thing the previous owner said the skid was overhauled 2 seasons before. performs like it so i'll take his word for it.

i'd try and find an xtra-10 skid on ebay or something from a late 90's polaris for yours.

Mine - 1989 Yamaha Phazer 485 w/ Comet 102C and boyesen power reeds. 14,356 kms.

Dads - 1997 Yamaha V-max XT 600 stock w/ polaris P-85 clutch

Brothers - on its way home soon! either a yamaha or skidoo. not sure what yet.


First ride of the 2009/2010 season - 11/12/09
09/10 km's - over 1200. pretty good for only half a seasons worth of riding.

craigslist is great too. depending on where you live.. you can find good deals. I got a xtra-10 out of a 99 for 75 bucks in excellent shape. the process of putting them in isn't hard either, just requires a little time.

Yes it would and JBShocks snowmobile shock rebuilding has the template for mounting one.

The only issue you would have by going to the X10 is the front suspension will now be Way off in camber and may not steer as well!
