can anyone tell me how much it will raise my '13 900 XP if I move my shocks to the outside mount bracket? Will it make much difference to the ride?
If you move the shocks to the outside holes it will raise your unit approximately 1 inch. But there are variables to this, depending on which unit you have, there are two different spring rates F/R for the XP. And the additional weight of the accessories will play a part in this as well.can anyone tell me how much it will raise my '13 900 XP if I move my shocks to the outside mount bracket?

I also moved my shocks out to give it a try. When doing so I noted that the two upper mount holes are in the same arc such that they are equidistant from the lower shock mount. There certainly is no lift coming from lowering the top of the shock. It is interesting how much lift others are achieving by this change. I would not expect the tiny bit of extra leverage the spring has on the arm in the outer position would net an inch of lift. And indeed in my case it was not even close to an inch.
But I will try again.
Toxic21/Greg, which models use which springs? And what is the rate difference?
