2020 Sidewinder S-TX
Hey Guys,

Just bought a used 2020 Sidewinder S-TX, and when I got home, was going over the machine, and found what looks like something broken off the machine (was in the tool bag) - any idea?

Sent a note to the previous owner, but no reply yet

Thanks

Scott

Looks to be a broken hook for the rear suspension torsion springs.

That is what they call a "Hook" part # 8LN-G7446-00-00. The front of the torsion spring fits & slides in there.
I've never seen that break although they do wear with high mileage.

You guys don't ride enough apparently. Seen 2 break in the last 2 years. Not on my sled but others. I replace mine every other year.
:oops: 25k on procross chassis, never seen it or even heard of it? Until Today @ 707 am

Let me clarify. Not on this sled. One was a skidoo, the other was a Yamaha 2-up. But they can break, and when they do, it's a show stopper. I carry a spare with me.

Show stopper indeed. I could see that for sure. Bet it could f$&@“ up the track?

On the Yamaha the torsion spring went right through the track. Luckily it didn't screw up the track other than a hole in it. Had to engineer a fix in the middle of nowhere Quebec. Luckily we as a group carry a lot of parts, bolts, nuts etc. Got us to a dealer and fixed it right.

Lucky it wasn’t worse. I could see this part on a 2 up going for sure. And it’s kinda like the site glass on the chain case. I never had a issue in 3 procross sleds. Lots of miles. But it’s happened to some. Wonder if that could be a bad plastic batch or molding process.? Either way I can’t imagine that happening at a fairly high rate of speed. Yikes.

agree, never seen one do that. Why would they keep it?
My guess...it broke on a trip. Previous owner was able to source a new one and instead of just throwing the broken one in the woods he did right thing by putting it in his sled for proper disposal.....then forgot it was there.
