After sampling the new 2013 Summit from Ski-doo this past March, we can honestly say the new breed mountain sled from Ski-doo is dramatically better than its predecessor. Certainly there is a lot of newness going on with the new Summit, but one of the major improvements, the tMotion rear suspension, is now available in kit form to upgrade your older Summit buggy equipped with an SC-5M suspension. The kit is affordable too… at just $319.99US and $369.99Canadian. Ski-doo has also made available the new Flex-Edge track as a bonus upgrade. Here’s the official bulletin announcement from Ski-doo:
Valcourt, QC, August 29, 2012 – BRP is offering a kit to update older Ski-Doo Summit model snowmobiles to the revolutionary new tMotion rear suspension. Combined with a
FlexEdge track, riders can gain many of the benefits incorporated in the new 2013 REV-XM platform.
The tMotion kit will fit any Summit REV-XP model with the SC-5M rear suspension and is value priced at $319.99 USD/$369.99 CAD. All the parts needed to complete the
conversion are included; split front arm, rear arm, drop link with ball joint, shock relay rods and two wheel rear axel. The installation instructions make it simple to update a machine and be back on the snow within hours.
For riders wanting to complete the upgrade, the Flex-Edge track is also available in the different lengths required to fit most Summits, and they can also get the 2103 Spindle and new Pilot DS II ski.
